For those finishing up their final year in high school, the decision of where to go to college is most likely, or soon to be, over. You can finally take a breath and have an answer to your Aunt Betty’s constant nagging, “So, have you decided yet?” You’ve made a huge, important decision. But, it is only the first of many. The next one you will begin to think about, and should have already started thinking about, is what you will major in.

College students (and future college students) can be broken down into three main categories when it comes to deciding on a college major.
