Factors to consider when choosing a subject to study
Subjects you love
Are you into numbers or sciences? Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit? If so, you might want to study a subject related to your interests. This includes courses in engineering, sciences, technology or business. The more you like what you’re studying, the better engaged you are in your classes and overall university experience.
How do you see yourself in 10 years? A web developer, a physical therapist, a doctor or an IT professional perhaps? Choose a program that will match that specific career path that you want to pursue. If you want to get a feel of the course before you dip your toes, you can take a class or two in the discipline of your choice. There are many universities who have preliminary programs or those who allow sit-ins in class.
Future earning potential
Many students shy away from this topic, but determining the earning potential of a degree is essential. University education is a big investment, especially if you’re self-supporting or you’re taking a student loan. Thinking about future compensation or salary is a valid point when choosing a subject to study.
Seek advice from an academic supervisor
Reduce stress by seeking help from a professional academic adviser. They specialize in helping undeclared students choose a degree that are fit for their academic goals. You can also ask professors who majored in the same subjects you’re interested in.
