Can you imagine going into your senior year and doubt the major that you have so painstakingly been working toward the last few years? Well, I certainly can. HELP!
My most recent thoughts: I am certain of the type of job I am looking for…. But will my current major get me there? Will my major hurt my chances of getting this job? Is it worth switching majors at this point? How much longer will it take? Ahh! I have to study more for that last final exam…
My mind is full.
Thankfully! I have the summer to figure this out.
And I know that I am not the only one…
Nearly 80% of new students heading for college are undeclared. About 50% of college students that have declared a major change their major, even two or three times!
Also, Portland State has great resources to help through this “traumatic” time…
What did or would you do in this situation?
Wish me luck!
