ABOUT THE BOOK

Once you are in college, everything changes, whether youre an 18-year-old living away from home for the first time, or youre attending as an older student. Even the way you talk to people changes when youre in college. Instead of just saying hello and asking your name and where you're from, now there is a new question that people will ask you time and time again: "What's your major?"

In college, your major becomes one of your defining characteristics. It says something about your interests, your personality, your hobbies, your talents and skills, and, most importantly, what kind of career path you will be choosing after you graduate.

If you do not already have a major, you might come to dread this question. In fact, the question often extends past the student body and becomes a common topic of conversation with everybody you bump into. Once people find out you are in college, the first thing they want to know is your chosen field of subject. Saying "I haven't decided yet" over and over can get a little old, but don't despair. Although you may envy those lucky people who come into college with a clear path in mind and instantly know what they want to do with their lives, you are not alone.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

6. Research the idea of a double major. If you really cannot decide between two majors and the decision is causing you undue stress, consider taking a little extra time to walk away with two different majors. With this double threat, you will be able to pursue jobs in two different fields and have a little more freedom when it comes to deciding what you want to do with your life. Since double majors typically take more time to complete, be sure you are prepared for the extra time in school and have the right financial and emotional resources to manage the extra stresses and obligations. But for those who are truly dedicated to two different fields of study, a double major is a great way to realize all your dreams at once.

7. Remember that your minor counts, too. Being able to declare a minor can help you compromise between two very different interests. If you really want to pursue a career in Computer Science, but you are also interested in math, see if you can pursue one field of study as a minor degree. A minor degree lets you explore a field you are interested in without having to fulfill the same number of hours and requirements as a major.
