If I am looking at majoring in Computer Science, how do I know which specific type/branch is right for me?
I don't have time to take a class for every specific branch of computer science to give things a try, but I do know my interests lay mostly on coding(still very broad), such as web development. It can also help if I know what are the various branches of Computer Science. #computer-science #choosing-major #college
What are some steps I can take to ensure that majoring in Computer Science is right for me?
I have encountered coding since middle school, and was interested in it ever since. However, I am currently taking AP Computer Science A right now in high school, and the class is somewhat a little challenging. That made me doubt if it is fit for me to major Computer Science because it will be even more challenging and competitive in college. #computer-science #college #choosing-major
Should I choose a minor that is easily utilized if my major is specific to a certain field?
I would like to major in conservation biology or wildlife biology, but it seems like a very difficult field to become employed in, and I was planning on minoring in psychology because I am interested in behavior and thought it would compliment a biology degree. However, would it be better to minor, or double major, in a more career-oriented field? Such as business, marketing, liberal arts, etc. They aren't especially interesting topics for me, but would they serve well as a backup plan? #conservation #wildlife-biology #business #marketing #liberal-arts #choosing-a-major #choosing-major ##choosing-a-minor #choosing-a-career #psychology #majors-and-minors #interests

When is the optimum time to declare a major?
How do you know that you're not rushing into anything and might end up picking something that you'll regret later? Is it really that big a deal for you to change your major and spend a little extra time in college? I feel like it's possible to not get your major choice completely right the first time around. #college #major #majors #careerpath #university #college-major #college-majors #choosing-a-major #choosing-major
