How do you select a major in college?!
By: Nathan Cornett
The first thing you will want to do is take a deep look inside… who are you? What are you passionate about? If you don’t know these answers, what about these- What subjects are you good at right now? Are there any subjects that you like? If you find a particular interest in biology, or history; you might find that that interest is more lasting than just a brief high school fling.
Start to seriously ask yourself what you may be interested in now. It may take years to develop those interests into actionable items, but if you start asking now you will have the answers sooner than if you wait.
Start with your interests and then move to your skills. You will want to like what you do (that’s your interests) but you’ve also got to be good at what you do (that’s your skills). Once you can see how your interests and skills work together in harmony, then you can start to develop a plan for your life that is lasting.
I spent a good part of my life very unsure of what I was doing. In fact I still have questions about my direction. But I know for sure that my passion is to ‘help’ people become who they were designed to be, and to live life to the fullest.
If you’re interested, I would be happy to meet with you through the MAPS profiling system we created in conjunction with Mike Adams. This profiling system is very affordable, and we can help to use your talents and strengths in conjunction with your interests and passions to develop a plan that you can use to guide you through the college planning process.
