Hey Harris!
Sure you can change. But like Ken said... don't jump to something else you don't like.
The good news is that Accounting is really a good basis for a bunch of excellent majors.... Such as Finance, Business, Economics even Computer Science is not out of the question, it sounds like you have good foundational skills in computer already.


Think about what you want to do with your degree. City and state management requires a LOT of finance and business and economics experts. Banking careers--- Oh Yeah! you are already pretty far down that path. You want to go to Law School? Accountants are often really good as Pre-Law students. How about big manufacturing firms...Guess what kind of people do Inventory Control??? People with Economics and Accounting skills. If you are a puzzle solver - then Computer Science may be just the right thing!


But your skills could lead you down the path to Insurance, or Marketing, or just a lot of other places


I wish you and your family all the best sir! It sounds like you have a great start.

Hi Harris!


Sorry that you are not happy with your major choice.


Changing might be good, but you need to do some work first to make sure that you are making a good choice. You do not want to switch to something else and find that you do not like that one either.


Getting to know yourself better and getting to know which career areas are aligned with your personality, interests, and aptitudes is very, very important.


Best of luck. Let me know if and how this might be of help. Keep me posted. I would like to follow your progress.
