I am currently a senior in high school. I am trying to decide what i want to be in life. For years I thought i would be something in the medical field, I have even taken courses to help my reach that goal. It wasn’t until recently when I decided that, health care is not my future career. I need to pick a major for myself soon so i can apply to college. But i am unsure of what major to choose. I love home design and know I would do great as a realtor or flipping homes. What should i do?September 24, 2018 at 5:27 pm #252152
Kudos to you for planning ahead. The good news is that you have about 2 years of college courses before you really have to commit to a major. In the meantime, a good major to start with is business administration (house flipping is a business). If you really love design, consider architecture, or engineering construction.
But most of all, don’t stress yourself out. Colleges will allow you to change your major if you like. Perhaps consider going for a non-traditional major, and you may even find there are resources out there for you in terms of scholarships. Then, after taking classes for 1-2 years, you’ll most likely find that your interests start to refine. Best of luck to you!

Have you ever thought about interior design? Are you able to go to your college undeclared? In that case you can take different classes and see what interests you.
