College Major Quiz

As college-bound high school seniors prepare for college, they are all scouring the internet for a trusted college major quiz that can answer the following question…what should I major in?

As if the college application process isn’t stressful enough, students must also start thinking about what they want to major in before even stepping foot on a college campus.

I believe the reason this process is so challenging for students is because they don’t have enough information or resources (like a college major quiz) available to them to make a good decision.

In fact, that’s why most students change their major at least once during their college career.  Sometimes this causes students to have to stay in college for 5 or 6 years, just to earn a 4 year degree!

So how can you avoid this?  The best thing that you can do is to take a solid college major assessment and evaluate all your potential options before applying to colleges and universities.

That’s why I’m going to do my best to help you figure out what you might want to major in by providing you with a comprehensive college major quiz.

The most important factor in choosing a major is interest.  I go over this in more detail in one of my previous posts, choosing a college major.  Be sure to check that post out if you haven’t already.

Are you ready? Great, now let’s get started with the College Major Quiz…
