Deciding On a Major

Choosing a major is always a difficult task. Specifically for high school seniors and college students at large. Now do not get it confused with what career you want to do. Although these two may go hand in hand, a major does not have to correlate with your career choice essentially. For instance, there are plenty of doctors that have degrees in art and history. It all depends on what your interest may be. If you are someone that dislikes wasting time – it may be best to choose a major similar to the career of your choice. This is because while attaining the major, you are taking the same courses needed for the career path, making this a highly efficient choice.
