Self-Assessment

"To be able to manage yourself, you finally have to ask, what are my values?"  

                                                                                                                   -Peter Drucker, Harvard Business Review, 2005.

 

 

 

Selecting a major can be a challenge for many students. Many students approach selecting a major with caution and may select a major that has been chosen for them by family a member and some students select a major based on peer pressure.  It is important that you select an academic major  that will support your academic interest and, perhaps, your future endeavors.

Selecting a major should be based on knowing one's self.  All students want to be academically successful.  However,finding the right major can be so overwhelming that some students may leave choosing a major to fate. 

  

Self-Reflection

Meet with an academic advisor or career counselor to discuss the following:  

  • What really interests you?
  • What are your long term goals?
  • What are your short term  goals?
  • Which classes have you enjoyed and are more most engaged in?
  • Do you like math and  science-based courses?
  • Would you prefer to know  more about society and culture at large?
