Many students remain undecided on choice of majors

With more students filling out college applications than ever before, it's important to make sure to apply early. However, in the rush to send out multiple applications, many students are unsure about choosing a major, according to the Huffington Post.

Although you have some time to pick a major while you complete general education classes, having a rough idea of what to study can be helpful in the long run. However, you shouldn't feel alone if you're not sure about what major to choose after you submit your college application. Danny Mason, an adviser for the Illinois College Advising Corps, said that some uncertainty is normal.

"Studies show that students change their major three to four times before they stick to one," Mason told the news source. "Branch out [and] talk to college advisors, tutors and upperclassmen. Find out what classes to take to build a foundation."

An article published in The Washington Post recommended that seniors talk to their parents about their options. Older people may have more experience and insight into the employment prospects of particular majors, especially in today's challenging employment market.

If you're not sure about what to major in, talk to your college admissions adviser about what you're interested in and what subjects you're good at.
