All students start college at different points; wherever you are, making a final decision about what to major in is definitely one of the most important decisions of your college career. The more you know and understand about yourself can make each step of the exploring process meaningful and straightforward as each step will take time. Take a minute to reflect on how you make decisions large and small.

  • Have you wondered how your feelings play a role in the decisions you make?
  • Do you know and understand your decision making style?
  • Is it effective or counterproductive?
  • When you become aware of your own style, you equip yourself with the tools to develop your unique style of decision-making

Having inadequate, inaccurate or too much information makes the decision you will make overwhelming. The best way to choose your major is by making a well-informed and a well-thought-out decision. Take the time to answer the questions that help you understand who you are and how you go about making decisions.

The ultimate decision is yours and the academic advisors in the AALC will work with you in developing an individualized action plan that makes this process for you enjoyable, effective, and meaningful as you explore and make well-informed decisions.
