Welcome Celine James to “The Funky Adjunct” blog. She has written a thoughtful article, “Who Should Decide Your College Major?”
Celine discusses government support in the United States and around the world for academic programs designed to “better reflect job market trends.” While business and engineering degrees symbolize such “job-ready” disciplines, Celine points out the long-term value of a liberal arts education, citing high acceptance rates for humanities and social science majors who apply to medical school. In the end, she warns against “one-size-fits-all” answers to choosing a major.
If you are attending college as an undeclared major, considering changing your major, or planning to enroll in college, this article will provide useful information and good guidance. Thank you, Celine, for sharing with us!
