I have 2 majors - International Business and International Studies, as well as minors in Japanese and Asian Studies. Hopefully you've been able to gain some insight into this matter, but let me just say that once upon a time, I was in your shoes.

And 3 majors later, I finally found something I really like.

I started as a computer engineering major. And I HATED it. I hated it after the first semester. Staying up until the wee hours of the morning trying to figure out where I'd forgotten a semi-colon in my code wasn't really my bag. So I switched - to Management Information Systems 2nd semester of my freshman year, and started taking my core business classes.

My junior year I got the brilliant idea that I needed to run away to Japan for awhile to improve on my Japanese and get away from the typical University setting. And I LOVED it over there. And it changed EVERYTHING for me. Prior to my study abroad, if my plans for the future were an etch-a-sketch, Japan took them and shook them all up and drew something else.

I came home and switched to International Business 2nd semester of my Junior year.

I'm finishing up my last year in school right now - hopefully will graduate in December. I'll have a degree in International Business and a degree in International Studies (I just added that major last semester).

So it's just a matter of finding what works right for you. I'm on major number 3 and 4. A number of my friends are as well..... and I know people who are juniors and seniors who still haven't figured it out yet. But who knows? It all depends on what you're interested in - and that can change. When I first started college I thought I wanted to fix computers for a living.

Now I want to do something with International Relations/Asian Studies/anything I can use my Japanese at.

I'm also one of those people who would have a major in Japanese - if only my school had one. But unfortunately, they only offer 3 years of Japanese here - only enough for a minor.

I'm not sure where you're at in your education - but you can always start off with general studies or something to get a feel for some different areas to see if you like them. And changing your major a couple of times doesn't necessarily set you back a whole bunch - I'll be graduating in 4 1/2 years, despite all the times I've changed. But I think the important thing to keep in mind is that even if you decide on something now, you're probably going to change a lot within the few years that you are in school, and your interests may change with you. Just try new things and you'll find something that you love.

'Really really fun profession'? Seriously, I would qualify med many ways but I can hardly say it's fun. I can say medecine is certainly interesting and challenging and quite self-fulfilling in the way you do feel you made a difference in someone's life. But fun? Not after weeks of 90 working hours per week. It pretty much leaves you with the feeling you have no life, especially when you've been on-call for many week-ends in a row. This certainly is not meant to discourage you. Med is a sweet and sour pill to swallow. You lived for it and have to like it very much to do it. But I don't find it's a fun fun profession. Maybe not now, it's beyond me to say it's fun when I'm in my worst mood for been sleep-deprived and work-consumed. :goggle:

But if it's what you like, go for it girl. And good luck! :thumleft:

I majored in Computer Engineering as well, but half-way through, I changed it to Computer Information Systems. CE is just not for me...

I don't really like CIS... but as I said, I was half-way through. And Since I don't like to deal with programming that much, CIS is the only major next to CE , so that I could substitute most of the courses in CE before...

Nonetheless, I'm planning to pursue my master degree in Art later on this fall... that's what I really like... dued to a family reason, I couldn't take that major in my undergrad, but I'm glad this time I probably could ... :wub:

Lesson learned: never never never take something that you're not interested in.. :pale:

Thank you very much for your input! Right now i'm a freshmen in college, and my "intended major" is computer science and engineering. Probably the only thing i'm sure of is minoring in Japanese. :lol Even though i'm not fully sure of this major, i think i will be able to enjoy it. Ever since i found out about computers i fell in love with it.

I agree with you, never take something that you're not interested in :-( . I'm in the same situation. No one in my family likes art, so i took Computer sciences and :cry: :cry: but finally, i'll graduate this summer. I'm in two mind about going to get a job and pursueing art major because art will take time.

you know the usual. Biochem!! . I hated science, so I double major in History. The funny thing is that when I got into tje sciences it wasn't my choice, and now I just love it with all my heart, gut, and soul. hehe. History is a wack-ass major; I really don't learn anything in there except "facts," and to tell the truth History is lame because it's mostly memorization. Sciences on the other hand delivers true knowledge. Isn't it so wonderful know what you're made of? Why you're here? it's just the greatest feeling when you, literally, know about life. =) that's just my two cents anyway. =)

Culinary is my major. Japanese is my minor starting this fall. My main goal is to study and specialize in japanese cuisine, eventually get an intership to study at the source, or find company that needs or deals in English cooks with a knowledge of Japanese and work for them in japan.

Once I get to japan, u'll have to drag me out of there. I will never leave. I want to work on becoming a citizen in japan once there, and living the rest of my life and dying there.

Why u ask? Cause I hate american culture, and I tire of how rude everyone is here. I know ppl care about there loved ones, but out on the roads, in stores, etc nobody cares about anyone but themselves. Its disgusting and pathetic to me and I'm sick of living here with ppl like that. Plus america has this ensatiable lust to stick ours noses in the worlds affairs instead of dealing with our own problems 1st...{I hate politics, {this is not a flame or challenge but just a statement from my point of view}}......

Wow...I agree with you. I really dislike it as well. American culture is so disgustic sometimes. So they have "Family Values" and stuff but what about everyone else? Now, I never been to Japan, but I'm pretty sure they're much more nicer than they are here.

Anyway, back to the topic. I think I posted mine a while back, but there's no harm in posting it again.. I think it changed anyway.. I plan on getting my Bachelors Degree in Information System Securty or "ISS" while minoring in Japanese. I don't know how far the University here offers for Japanese but I want to go to the furthest one. After that, I hope to work for an American company first then transfering over to Japan. If I do manage to transfer, I plan on actually looking for another job myself and hope to find a better one. I maybe want to manage Networks and work with security..I'm not sure. I may want to be a Tech Translator. I also plan on working on my Citizenship and hope to eventually naturalize here. I don't want to go back or hear about America in any way, except for family.

That was pretty long, don't know if anyone will read it. :P

at the moment i'm second year computer science.

over the past year+bit i've gone from loving computers to hating them - to top it off my university is going down the frackin' drain, this year they've changed my course guidelines so now I can't continue japanese subjects along side it (you can't minor in anything with it, and they killed the double degree arts/compsci before i started).

i could transfer to a double degree at a better university - but this would be much more expensive and a longer degree. time and money i could be spending in japan/korea/anywherebuthere.

right now i feel as though i'm stuck between a rock and a hard place :| だめだ。 the lack of social life also kind of sucks heh.

i took information management... hehe! i guess u know that already from my other posts :P neweiz it's a combination of computer science (read: programming languages such as VB, ASP, C, etc.) and business administration (read: management, human resource, organizational theory) anyway in my opinion, you should take a course that would let you have jobs that you could picture yourself doing for the next couple of years... my first course was commerce (i have the option to take accountancy, business administration, and economics as major) but i realized that if i took that course, it would mean jobs that are not-so-flexible (8am-5pm) and typical officework.. it doesn't quite appeal to me that's why i shifted to another course.. anyway, whatever major you take..it doesn't mean that you'll be chained to that for the rest of your life.. u can still take other supplementary courses to further enrich yourself.. i for one don't plan on being a programmer my whole life, i have other dreams like being a writer, an interior designer, photographer, animator hehe! madami! :P neweiz what i'm trying to say is you can still be all you want to be... you have all the time in the world to be it.. so don't stress too much ok? cliche as it may sound, just choose what your heart desires 8)

im doing finance and accounting with a minor in chinese and japanese.i like my foreign language courses more.. although it's good to know how to finance your money and accounting lets you know where your money is going. I think after taking all these classes i'm more conscious about spending and how to make my money work for me. ^_^

Hmmm... I hope I'm not alone in this one >_<

I'm a music major, currently finishing my sophomore year as a baritone (mid-low vocal range) in Vocal Performance. I sing opera mainly, but have also done various concert repertoire, German Lieder and Foreign art songs, musical theatre, jazz songs, slam poetry, spoken theatre, and pop music ranging from Christian to R&B. I'm also rapidly getting good at the piano...I think. T_T;;

Not really trying to brag, I just like to make my "presence" with music known. I'm also thinking of minoring in asian language studies, or music composition/education as well. Someday I plan to write an opera in Japanese or something...if I ever have the time (I take 9 classes a term, 12-16 hour day depending on what classes or what I have to practice.) All for the joy of singing. ^_^

Hey glad you decided what you want. I was the same too, I couldn't really decide between a few subjects but then decided on which I was interested in the most at the time.

Try taking a counseling class for a career. It really helps a lot if I didn't realize it sooner.

IT Major and working in the field... since it has gotten boring to me I'm going back to school for Graphic Design and Marketing.

Try taking a Personality Assessment test. Take note on the instruction that is given.

Please answer according to who you are, instead of who you want to be.

Shouldn't it be a B.S. if it's chemistry?

2003 UCSD Bioengneering B.S. here (POS degree)

there's 2: B.A. is better if you plan on going into the medical field. B.S. for more hardcore science studies, like scientists and other lab work. ^^

I'm currently taking advertising but I'm working towards fashion design afterwards.

Try to figure out whether you like medical or computer. sure these earn you big money but it's not for everyone. i was going to take pharmacy but when i took chemistry it sucked so i didn't go into pharmacy. computer work is too boring for me because it doesn't change often. but what i recommend is to do all your GE (general education) first and during the summer or winter session go to a community college to take 2 courses, one in medical and the other in computer to see if you like it. you probably have 2 years to figure out what major you want. if you don't like those two find out what else interests you and take a class and find out. good luck!

im takin health science as a major, it suks that im kinda limited on wat i can choose but for rite now its good. i always like psychology as a major although i nvr took any classes for psych, biology is interesting but ehh dissecting stuff aint most ppls thing haha,
maybe u can try hospitality , non offense but my cousin is going to do that and if it works out he can open his own restaurant, try different things see wat u like 2 do,

volunteering at the hospital was thje best, the doctors almost tricked me into bringing lunch to a dead body - sry bout the thought but yyea

'Really really fun profession'? Seriously, I would qualify med many ways but I can hardly say it's fun. I can say medecine is certainly interesting and challenging and quite self-fulfilling in the way you do feel you made a difference in someone's life. But fun? Not after weeks of 90 working hours per week. It pretty much leaves you with the feeling you have no life, especially when you've been on-call for many week-ends in a row. This certainly is not meant to discourage you. Med is a sweet and sour pill to swallow. You lived for it and have to like it very much to do it. But I don't find it's a fun fun profession. Maybe not now, it's beyond me to say it's fun when I'm in my worst mood for been sleep-deprived and work-consumed. :goggle:

But if it's what you like, go for it girl. And good luck! :thumleft:
Totally agree with the above!
It's not exactly 'fun' to get to the point of practicing bliss, but it's certainly fulfilling in its own way.

Thank goodness for the 80 hour capped work weeks here in the USA for interns/residents. I think after residency, it should be a little better, unless you go into neurosurgery which would mean 7 years of residency hell (overnight call every 2 nights) and then a lifetime of being in the operating room. Be prepared for overnight calls in the hospital for most residency programs of at least every 4 days.... ahhhhhhhhhhhh.

Med school's not that easy either... after you get in. If you're in the US... be prepared to be taking exams for the rest of your life.

If you can stand all that, you're ready for a life as a physician! It's an awesome, altruistic career when you can look past all that logistics nonesense.

Good luck to you! I hope you choose it since you sound so passionate about it :D
