I think it depends on the major and what you want to do - for myself personally, I have a degree in sociology but am not a sociologist. However, you may get an accounting degree and pursue a career in that area if that's your passion. I think what you're asking are two separate questions - can you settle on a major and pursue a career in that major, or do you end up doing something else? I don't think the two are the same. Yes, you can settle on a major, hopefully on a topic that you are passionate about! And when you look at the first step in your career, hopefully the major can help you get a role in an area that you're passionate about.
As you progress in your career path, you may find that you're not passionate about whatever you're doing -- and that's actually ok, it happens all the time and people make career changes routinely. If you're early in your career, it's about exploring and figuring out what works for you. Good luck with your major and in whatever you choose for your future job!
Hi Charles, it is all depends what kind of major and how passionate you are to achieve that path. When I graduated from high school, I always know I want to be in hospitality, and I did it and I am continuously doing others education to enhance my hospitality skills. If you really like the field that you choose, when you ran into challenges, don’t give up, be consistent and find a solution.
Hi Charles. I'd say it depends on the individual. I was friends with a number of people in college who knew what they wanted to do for a career, chose and stuck with one major in college, and are still in that profession today. So it does happen in real life! On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are many people who explore different areas of study until they figure out what truly interests them. Neither path is right or wrong. I'd recommend talking with others in person to see what they're thinking or planning in regards to this, and perhaps they can give you some unique insight or perspective. Good luck!
