How to Choose a College Major

One of the most difficult decisions a student can make is choosing a major. Knowing which field to study is not easy, especially for those who have limited funds for study and/or are interested in a variety of fields. Following is some advice that can enable you to know which field is right for you.

Getting to Know the Options

We encourage students to get to know a field in depth before opting to make it their major or program of interest. Learning what the courses entail can help you to know if you really want to study a particular field or not. It is also important to take note of course deadlines to ensure that you will be able to complete the course on time and in full.

Consider Job Opportunities

Obtaining a degree in the field of your choice will enable you to take advantage of job opportunities that would have remained unavailable otherwise. At the same time, you should also be aware of the job market in your particular area. Find out if there are job openings in the field you want to study before picking a major, as doing so will enable you to find a job easily upon graduation.

Desires and Dreams

Last but not least, consider your desires and dreams. Choosing a field that you feel passionate about will make it easy for you to handle the coursework and graduate with high grades.

If you have a particular job in mind but are not sure what type of degree would best suit your needs, we encourage you to contact our Admissions Department. We can not only provide you with guidance that will help you choose the right program, but IBMC will also work with potential employers to help place you in your externship and offer career placement after graduation.
