The most important part of this article for me was the section explaining that choosing a major means you have to give up all other majors. Apperently, at least at PSU, there are ways to get multiple majors through special programs. This would be awesome for me since there is so much I want to do. I also found the other parts encourging that talked about the best ways to find out about majors.
There are two reasons to choose a college major: to prepare for a specific field or job, or to immerse yourself in a subject that fascinates you.
The most important thing for me that I read in this article is that your major does not decide your life plan. There are many things I enjoy and many majors I'm sure I would have a lot of fun pursuing. I've been stressing about which major to pursue when really I can make changes at any time and my degree doesn't even necissarily decide my career.
Students should follow their hearts, not simply choose a major that betters job prospects.
This article made an interesting point about waiting until college to pick your major. Everyone seems to be trying to rush kids into picking a major with talk of jobs scarcity and what not. Even in CE we are being asked to state our major when some of us don't even know what college we're going to. I still haven't decided what major I want and you know what, I think that's okay. I've narrowed it down to a few topics I want and I think that's okay for now. I just need to "follow my heart".
