Picking a college major is a tough task. Some students have two majors called a double major. Some college students are already declared when entering college, others are undeclared and must choose a major. It is best for college students to find out what major they want to be as early as possible. Changing majors later in a college career can be difficult or impossible based on previous credits and requirements for the major.
At some schools, where it is very difficult to get into, some students apply for a major that is easier to get into, so they can get into the school, and then they transfer majors to get into the major they desire. Be careful if you plan on trying this, because you may end up spending thousands of dollars on classes that don’t help you graduate.
