Big Apple’s Guide To Choosing A Major

Published on: September 14, 2017

It’s been three long years of high school. Once you’ve made it through this last one, you will soon be on your way to the next phase of life. If you’re one of the millions of students who plan to enroll in a university next year, it won’t be long before you have to choose a major. While some have known since elementary school what they wanted to do with their lives, others haven’t the slightest clue. If you fall into the latter category, use this guide to help you make a decision. Also be sure to use our private tutoring NYC services to help you get to where you deserve to be.

Step 1: Think About What You’ll Do With This Degree

We advise against selecting a major based solely on the fact that the subject interests you. If you have no career in mind that you plan to pursue upon receiving this degree, there’s the possibility that it doesn’t end up leading anywhere. Instead, think about what kinds of careers this kind of degree can lead to and whether that’s a career in which you see yourself working one day. If you determine that that’s applicable to your personality and interests, then we recommend you have at it.

Step 2: Make Sure The Subject Genuinely Interests You

On the flip side, if you pursue a major solely due to the fact that the adjacent career will make you a lot of money, you’ll probably regret it within a matter of weeks. If you have no interest in the subject, the end goal will not motivate you enough to do a good job. And more importantly, you won’t be happy. Money is important. But it isn’t everything. You may not know what you love yet. But you should have a vague idea of what you don’t like. Let that information be your guide.

Step 3: Don’t Put Too Much Pressure On Yourself

Never forget that when it’s all said and done, it’s never too late for a change. If you choose a major and find that it isn’t for you, it’s not the end of the world. You will have still learned something valuable that you can take with you into your next major. Many successful people change majors and also change careers several times throughout their lives. So do your best to make an informed decision and be happy with it. You’re going to be fine.
