Passion, Not Profit, Should Drive Your Choice of College Major
Your college major doesn’t necessarily determine how you’ll spend the rest of your life. While there is often pressure from parents and society for you to choose a college major based on prestige and earning potential, it is actually more important that you select a major that correlates with your interests and your passions. Solid academic preparation, along with a becoming personality, can actually get you a job anywhere. I know a political science major who went on to become a successful record company executive—not your typical path, but skills, passion, and opportunity trump the specific major, every time!
