Choosing your Major in University
« on: October 20, 2010, 11:25:04 AM »
Deal students;

Mostly students lost themselves and also confused when they are going to decide their major. When it feels like you can’t even decide what to have for dinner or what to do on Thursday night, choosing a major may be a little scary.

With some research and planning, you can make an informed decision based on facts, personal experience and knowledge of what best suits you.

What is a Major?

•    A major is a concentration of courses that will focus and shape your academic, intellectual and developmental experiences.
•    A major should interest and excite you. 
•    A major is only one piece of the educational puzzle.
•    A major does not necessarily define your career path!

Try the following guidelines, may help you to decide your major.

    a. Assess your interests and skills
       A good way to start is to ask yourself some “what” questions.

•   subject areas interest you most?  Which ones do you do well in?
•   skills and talents do you have?  What do you find comes easy to you?
•   strengths and weaknesses can you identify?
•   dreams do you have? What do you envision yourself doing? What do you see yourself doing in 5 or 10 years?
•   past experiences (extracurricular activities, volunteer work) have you enjoyed?
•   what are your values?If you can, discuss these things with people you have known well for a long time as they may have useful insights you may overlook

    Try it, if you still wait to decide your major. Feel free to step on my door, if you need any counseling.

Sometimes students take two major subjects. If we ask that why you take two subjects as major? Most students answer is to heavy weighted their certificate.

Sir, if I take one major is it not possible achieves my goal? Is it necessary to take two major? Will they get extra benefits?

Students should set aim or goal in his/her life. What they want to do in their future life and which subject is most interesting and intellectual. Then go for major subject.

Our Siddique Sir has given some good guideline for choosing major subject.
