Decisions about your Major

Choosing Your Major- Choosing your major will be one of the most important academic decisions you will make in college. For some students, choosing a major is a relatively easy decision. For others, choosing a major requires more time and thought. You will find that some investigation of your personal goals, interests, abilities, and careful consideration of alternative fields and employment opportunities will lead to a good choice for you.
