You don't have to have a major picked until your junior year in most place, and even then you can change. Besides, I'm not sure how much difference a major makes. Except for certain fields, people's occupations can and do change drastically after college. For example, I majored in Greek and religion, intending to become an Episcopalian priest. Before I graduated, I dropped the priest idea but decided to keep both majors. I graduated not knowing what I wanted to do when I grew up, and that worked out fine. Over the last 30 years, I've been various kind of temp workers (I graduated during a recession) and then a receptionist, secretary, proofreader, reporter, editor, desktop publisher, systems support coordinator, technical writer, database administrator, and teacher of several subjects. I have my master's in curriculum and instruction (with a concentration in ESL) and am about to start teaching high school math, even though I haven't taken any math since high school. I've always managed to support myself, my husband, and our four kids -- DH stayed home most of the time with the kids, so he didn't contribute much to the family coffers.Don't pressure the kid, okay? Some people decide on something when they're little and are still doing it 70 years later. Others change from year to year. It really does all work out okay.phantomdiver
