How do you find what you want to study in college?
I don't have many hobbies nor fave subjects. I tried asking myself about this but there's nothing really giving me an answer. Are there any websites that give tips or information about courses or future careers? #career-counseling
Get out of your comfort zone.
There are a lot of resources online when looking for a college or career and questions to ask and consider.
To be honest, I felt left out because I had many friends who knew exactly what they wanted to study while I was still trying to figure that out. The thing that helped me the most was setting up an appointment to speak with an academic advisor at school. I told the advisor about my dilemma and I was advised to take general education courses (classes that satisfied the requirements for graduation). From taking these classes, I ended up taking a class that I became immediately interested in. I did not know whether I would major in it because none of my immediate friends had the same interest. But I knew I enjoyed the class and was excited to learn more. I did end up learning more and choosing it as my major.
The path to finding what you want to study is not always a clear or straightforward one. Sometimes you might have to take a few classes to learn more about yourself and what you're interested in. Sometimes you'll learn more about the courses you do not like, and that's great- it'll help you narrow down your options. Having the guidance of an academic advisor is also helpful along the way :)
I have the exact same feeling in my college years and my answer is to explore as much as possible, but don't stress out if it take you longer to find your true career. I have changed major a few times and even changed industry from finance to tech after I enter the workspace. So I would advise to try out as much as interesting things in your college, you can join different groups, study abroad and just enjoy the wonderful world! Also I would say people's interest always change and the importance is to enjoy the journey as you have embarked on!
