Q: I finished my first year at college, but I don’t know what to major in. I don’t know if I should be taking time off to try to figure it out, or if I should continue on and figure it out while in school.
A: There are two good places to decide on a major. The best is in a carefully chosen internship; the next best is at school, taking major classes. Unless you have an internship already lined up, you might consider enrolling now in introductory courses for one or more majors that are of interest to you. Simultaneously, you can begin looking for a internship–even an unpaid one–that you can fill during your next break from school.
