Pick Your College Major with Minimum Risk by Taking Online College Courses
Some students arrive at college already knowing what their majors will be. For others, picking a major is a hit-or-miss process. They take an introduction to psychology course to help them decide whether or not to major in psych. Next they take a sociology course, an English literature course, a history course, and so on. Finally, they arrive at a better idea of what their majors will be. But with the costs of college courses edging higher every year, the cost of all that “shopping around” can add up fast.
There’s a better way. It is simply to take college courses online to get a sense of what your major might be. The risks are minimized – if you don’t like a course or decide that the subject matter is not for you, you can simply not complete it, and it won’t lower your GPA or leave a black mark on your permanent course transcript. And if you like the course and do well in it, you can transfer the college credits to your college or take the same course later on at your regular college and enjoy the fact that you are well prepared for it.
