What major is the most broad and will set me up best in life?
For me not knowing what i want to do, i feel as its best for me to find a major that will set me up with whatever i do decide to do, i just don't know what that major is.
1. Try not to worry too much about this. Simply having a degree is helpful when job searching.
2. It may be beneficial to eliminate what type of degree *isn’t* lucrative at this point in history. Then go from there.
3. See #1. Don’t worry excessively about picking the “right” degree. My relative got a degree in international relations & could not find a job in that field. For a while, it seemed like a bad educational investment. However, this person realized a passion for teaching & became a teacher - something that would not have been possible without a degree.
Hope this helps!
To directly answer your question, I find that a business degree covers so many aspects of any work in any industry (self-employment, sales, tech, etc…).
To indirectly answer your question, unless you have a very specific goal in mind that requires a specific degree (ie coding, nursing, etc…), may I recommend that you focus on a degree that involves an interest that you enjoy even though you don’t know what you want just yet. You will be successful with what you enjoy and you never know what doors may open up through your pure pleasure in learning more about something you already like. Should you find something you want to focus on after your degree in the future, most industries have certifications, free online courses, higher education, etc…that can let you explore focused areas. Life is often fun when you continue to grow and learn, no matter your age or experience! Best of luck!
Sarah recommends the following next steps:
I will tell you both my children changed there degrees after there first years in college which makes them happier . Good luck and remember you have the rest of your life to work , just be happy .
There are a lot of young people who have no idea what they want to major in.
It can be very costly to go to college and not have a clear or near clear direction of a career path. One thing you can do is to go to a career counselor and take some skills tests to see what you are good at .
This may give you some direction.
You could go to the Military which will give you time to find a career path and then when you do the military will allow you benefits to go to college or financial support without getting into unnecessary debt.
