How many times have you heard this question? ... "So, what are you going to major in?" ... The question comes from your parents, teachers, relatives, guidance counselors, friends, pastors, and sometimes a random stranger on the street (the latter is relatively unlikely, but hey, you never know). You probably fall into one of these categories:
1) You know the answer right away. For as long as you can remember you have always wanted to be a ________ (doctor, teacher, beet farmer, etc).
2) You think you want to be in one profession, but also have interests in other areas.
3) You simply have no idea.
Well, I've got some good news for you ... YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW RIGHT NOW! At Maryville College you do not have to declare your major right away. You have time to figure out what you're interested in and take some classes. You have time to explore and by the time you declare your major, you will feel confident in your decision.
