Perhaps one of the most daunting questions a student can face is, What is your major? This is a crucial question for students applying to university and also an incredibly challenging one. Choosing a major at university can be considered one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and you certainly don't want it to be wrong. There are cases when students don't know what they want to choose and grapple with uncertainty, but others don't want to spend four years learning something that they won't use in the end and let's face it, it is very stressful to choose your lifetime career when you are 17 or 18.
To keep things interesting, let's talk about my experience when choosing my major.
So, what is my major?
I will not lie and say that choosing a major was not very easy for me either. I have always loved mathematics, and I knew for sure that I would choose a specialty where I would have contact with mathematics. Along with mathematics, I was very interested in business, but I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do. So when the time came to make a choice, I chose finance as my major. When I started studying finance, I was questioning my decision about whether it would be right to study finance, whether there was a field in business that would interest me more and many other questions. Therefore, taking everything into account, I finally decided to change my major and started studying business administration at Webster University in Georgia, and I don't regret my decision. What I like about studying business is that it is a broad field, and you have to deal with so many different subjects, such as finance, marketing, economics, and more, before choosing your final field. And all of this helps you better understand what interests you the most, and most importantly, you don't get bored.
Webster University to the rescue.
As I already mentioned, I changed my university along with the change of major, and let me tell you, it was a great decision. There are many things I like about Webster University, but I am going to only pick one thing for now, and that is the opportunity to study subjects from a completely different field with your major. It helps you better understand what you are interested in and also discover a completely new field of interest. For example, I will say from personal experience that I never imagined that I would ever study international relations, and I would like it very much.
In the end, I would like to say that choosing your major can be complicated, and it is okay not to have answers to that right away. Additionally, I hope this article was interesting, conveyed my point, and gave you a glimpse of how to learn more about the benefits of studying at Webster University.
