You don’t necessarily have to know what you want to major in to be a savvy college shopper. And it’s perfectly OK to apply as an undeclared/undecided major as long as you select schools that offer that option. But even if you’re not ready to commit to a major, you should think about what you might like to study. Ask yourself this question—what would you like to learn more about?
“What do you want to major in?” is a big question that many of our Collegewise students aren’t yet ready to answer. “What would you like to learn more about?” is less committal. It lets you consider how much you like math without necessarily deciding that you’ll major in math yet.
College is school, after all. It’s important to consider the learning part of your future four years even if you’re not quite ready to declare what you’ll be learning about.
