Are you feeling undecided about your major? Below are signs that you should switch.
Your heart’s not in it
Simply being uninterested and bored with your classes is already enough reason to change majors. High school is mostly general education and we get why you’re not interested in studying your chosen course. But college is the time to excel in what you’re good at. Friendly reminder: choose your passion.
You are not performing well in your major classes
It is a given fact that college has a lot of challenges but it should not be beating you down. Do you feel like you’re just submitting all the requirements just to pass the major? Think about all the possibilities of self-growth and a higher grade when you take a major that best suits you.
Everybody else was doing it
Many students take majors just because it is a popular option. They take these majors without even knowing the details about them and their future careers. Most often, these students arrive at a work that is mismatched to their finished study.
Your major does not match your ideal career path
Maybe you just realized what career you want to pursue after taking a major. If you think that it’s too late, you’re not. Just be sure that you want to pursue a different major, then find a major that has more relevant material for your ideal career path.
You chose a major compatible with income and not interest
Practicality is one factor of choosing a major, but if you are more focused on the interest of the study and not the future income, probably switching your program is the right option for you. Remember that money isn’t everything. Think of working soon on a job that you like while earning money.
It’s affecting your mental health and relationships
If you are losing a lot, not just time, but also your friends and sanity, it may be best to reassess your choices. Seek out help, talk to a counselor to help you during this time. Consider the option of changing majors, maybe this is why these are impacted.
The program is not worth the investment
College demands a lot, time, and money. If your chosen school under-delivers and takes up a lot of your money, consider switching courses. If you feel like your study is not worthwhile, it may be time to weigh your choices.
Changing your major is understandable and there is no shame in that. You should be proud that you know what you should be investing in, and not waste more time and money.
