About This Quiz

Are you ready to declare a major right now, or are you simply thinking of your future? No matter where you are in your educational career, this quiz can help you manage the tough decision of picking an academic path that best suits your desires and talents. There's a lot more that goes into successfully pursuing a major than simply doing well academically. You should also consider your personality and your hopes for the future before you make a final decision. 

Don't fret! You don't need to cram or worry about getting the answers wrong on this quiz. As long as you are being truthful about who you are, you will have no problem finding the perfect major for you. You may have thought about a degree in business administration, but you have to remember your artistic side, too. Or perhaps you love the idea of being a doctor, but you've forgotten that you cannot stand the sight of blood. All of these little likes and dislikes will go a long way to determining what you should do for the rest of your life!
