Picking a college major is the first step towards picking a college. With that being said, it’s hard. It’s hard to go from being told what to study to getting to choose what to study. It’s hard to decide what you do I want to study to get a job in after college. But fear not! I am here to give you suggestions on how to find and pick a major.

Make a list of things you are good at. These can be subjects, skills, or activities. Anything you think you do well or other people have told you do well. Now go through that list and put a star or marked the things you are good at and enjoy.

Then go to Google and look up “majors that involve…” or “majors for people who are good at…” Start with the items you have starred, but don’t forget everything else. Research the majors and suggestions Google gives you. You may find something that you really interested in.

Keep in mind you don’t have to choose your major before you go to college. You can go to college as an undecided major and take classes in areas you think you want to major in without committing. Also you can change your mind. Picking a major is not signing a contract in blood you can change your major if you decided you don’t like it.
