Despite economic slowdown—or perhaps because of it—college enrollment is booming. More adults are going back to school to upgrade their skills or change careers entirely. More high school students are entering college, uncertain of what to study but certain they need a degree. The result: More students face the obstacle of choosing a college major.
The 12 assessments in College Major Quizzes coach readers through the process of making that decision. By assessing their skills, interests, values, goals, personalities, preferences, motives, assumptions, learning styles, and long-term career plans, this book helps readers explore their options, evaluate the merits of each, and choose the college program that fits them and their career goals best. The quizzes are easy to take, score, and interpret, and each chapter contains checklists and activities to help readers make the most of their results. In addition, the book includes brief descriptions of the 100 most common college majors, making it easy for students to research their options and confirm their choices.
