When you graduate from high school and get ready to head to college, one of the most common questions you’ll hear from family and friends is: “What are you going to major in?” If you’ve already decided on a major, great!
If you don’t know what you want to major in, don’t worry – you’re not alone. Many new college students have no idea what they want to study and need guidance on how to choose a major. Many who begin with certainty about what to study end up changing their major, sometimes more than once.
College graduates are more fluid in the workplace than ever before, changing jobs and even careers frequently. One of the biggest benefits of a quality liberal arts education is a broad base of knowledge, which helps you be more flexible and pick up new skillsets quickly.
Regardless of what major you choose, a bachelor’s degree will give you a significant edge with employment and lifetime earnings.
