Have you decided on a major?

Are you thinking about changing your major?

Career Services at Bluefield College can assist you with the major selection process. We offer career assessments to help clarify personality and interest factors as they relate to majors and careers. If you’re having trouble deciding on a major, think about your past courses and professors. Which courses did you look forward to attending? In which courses did you enjoy doing the assignments? Did you feel at home in any particular department? Your answers to these questions can give you good clues about possible majors and/or minors. Also, take time to talk with friends, family, professors, and academic advisors to receive their input about which majors they think would best suit you.
