Choosing a major that will lead to a career is often a very difficult task, and the best advice for your student is to be patient. It may take one or two semesters, sometimes longer, before a student feels comfortable with deciding on a major or making career decisions, and that is actually a good thing. A university education is, after all, a process of discovery, and you want your student to take the time to find a major that suits their talents and inspires them to excel.
Encourage your child to visit the Career Services Office early in their freshman year. The office has many resources to guide them in making choices that match their personal interests and career goals.
Faculty, too, are very instrumental in guiding students to make good career decisions. Encourage your student to visit with faculty in their field of interest.
