How do I find the right college majors to study as a high school student?

What are some ways to determine which college major I want to study in college as a high schooler, especially under the pre-med or medical branch?

Good question, Kayla!

Most medical schools seem interested in a span majors as long as you have completed the prerequisites for that school. A lot of these can be completed as electives!

I took a more traditional route. I have a Bachelor's in Biomedical Science but with minor's in Chemistry and Sociology. I have friends in medical school with English, Psychology, Russian History, and Physic's degrees.

If you do want to go the medical school route though, I would highly suggest these courses: Anatomy & Physiology (as many as you can take!), Genetics, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Medical Ethics if you can. These may seem intimidating but take it step by step and you can do it!

Well, lets do this. :-). 3-steps

1 - Based on the current world environment where is your interest in life
2 - Is there a subject that meets that criteria
3 - GenZ I suppose, therefore how can you impact the future of the world and your own circle of life.

Hi Kayla!

Now I can't speak in the medical sense but I can help overall. Your major should definitely be something you enjoy so it can be sustainable. You can go for one of your hobbies or interests! You can also just go for stuff tjat sounds interesting. Overall, you want to make sure it's something you want to do. I like invision myself in the career I want, then see how it feels. Always remember it's okay to switch majors, and a lot of college students do!
Thank you comment icon Hi, Ellie! Thank you so much! Is it recommended that I take a science major, a pre-pharmacy major or both if I’m interested in the medical field? Kayla

Hello Kayla!

As a person who has struggled to choose a particular career to get in and pursue throughout my undergraduate years, I know how it is.

I would recommend thinking about subjects that most interest you and joining communities at your school or local centers such as clubs, student gov, and volunteer centers. Then, start meeting people who either have relevant experiences or have already gotten deeper into their careers and can give you insightful advice.

Financial factors are not negligible, so do not feel you have wrongfully chosen your career if financial advantages were your top priorities.

In the end, it is all up to you, but I do think what is the most significant here is how much effort you have put in to exploring your passion
