Tips for Choosing a College Major

A college prep school in Orinda can help your student decide his college major. This video discusses additional ways for prospective college freshmen to decide between their curriculum options.

Many prep school students may feel pressure to list a major on their college applications. However, college counselors caution against making a decision before being sure about it. Colleges typically ask prospective students why they wish to pursue a given major, so students who are uncertain about their choices may not provide compelling answers, which could affect their admissions. College prep help experts recommend that students look to their personal interests, extracurricular activities, and part-time jobs to determine what they enjoy and how they can make those pursuits their careers.
