After high school, we quickly have to think of where we want to head in life. You decide on going to college and have to decide on a major.

So the question is ...Will you do your major in something you absolutely love and can identify with but know it won't provide lucrative jobs?

or its better to do the major in something you know will provide lots of  job oppertunities but it's something you're not quite excited about?

I'm pursuing B.com and CA, and i choose to do CA for the sheer scope it offers, but its now that i've been expanding my knowledge about various subjects related to the finance field that i've realised this is what i want to do. So for me, i'm doing what has scope and what i've eventually begun liking!

But i think while choosing a major, one must put scope of a subject above your personal liking.

I agree Preets. I would love to be doing photography or games development but i know they are not best suited to me as a career choice and nor would i have many job paths.

i guess you can major in what you like but you also have to think of the future...may be you can do minors in other areas just to keep your self safe for the future... and u might change your mind later on...

for example i loved to teach but my parents own several businesses so they asked me to do BA which i did, but i also took courses which teachers need...

so i work in my store plus i tutor some kids Smile

if you are not sure at all do General Liberal Arts, once you do some courses it will help generate interest in some stuff...

when choosing a major keep all prospects in mind!!!

cheers, neetu

I think your major should be chosen according to your interest because you will never be able to accelerate in a field you're not much interested in..
