HomeArticlesChanging Majors: 50% of College Students Do It!

Not surprising, half of college sophomores change their intended majors from what they had planned when they graduated from high school. High school students whose intended major was a good fit with their interests were more likely to stick with their major in college. This information resulted from a study undertaken by ACT. This reaffirms the importance of career exploration, counseling, and good decision-making when students are planning for college. Just a reminder I have an excellent Career Assessment which will guide your high school senior into selecting appropriate colleges and majors. Because of its aptitude component, this instrument provides a much more comprehensive assessment of an individual’s skills and interests when matched up with a person’ career options.
