Majors

No Major? No Sweat!

No Major? No Sweat!

So you want to go to college but you don't have a ideas for a major...well then, I've got a story for you.

Once upon a time there was a high schooler who needed to make a lot of big decisions & that freaked her out big time. Making life-altering choices such as choosing a college felt daunting when she had no idea what direction (literally or figuratively) she wanted to go in life. She felt like the unknown was far too close for comfort, & it overwhelmed the planner in her. While her doctor-aspiring friends were applying to colleges with the best pre-med programs & her future-architect-friends found schools suited to their needs, she felt as though she had nothing to go on at all in the college decision-making process. However, by the grace of God & the advice of a few people, she ended up at a school that she loves &, after some time, studying a subject she also loves.

But what if your passions & your talents don't quite line up quite perfectly? Or what if you're incredible at a wide variety of things (people like that really do exist, I promise) & you're also passionate about them all? Or maybe if you just simply can't quite make up your mind about what to do. That's why there's such thing as a double major!

What's Your Major? // The Truth about "Worthless" Majors

As a freshman, I agonized over figuring out what my major should be.  After a couple of English classes, I knew that I wanted to major in Literature, but I had heard too many people say Humanities majors could expect to flip burgers for the rest of their lives. I prayed and agonized until finally I decided that I would regret not majoring in English. It came down to deciding if I wanted to let fear dictate my decisions for the rest of my life or live the kind of life I wanted.
