Tuesday, July 28, 2020
Online students should take these steps to think about their major!
For many, choosing a college degree major can be quite intimidating. The idea of making a decision that will affect your future career sounds a little daunting, especially when we factor in the financial investment and cost of a college degree.
For many online students, it is easy to choose an online degree program if the online education degree is used to further a current career path. However, not all online students are already working professionals who have chosen their career path. Some working professionals may also be looking to change their career paths.
Let’s take a look at these 3 easy steps that can help you figure out what online degree major is right for you!
1. Define your career path and interests!Potential online students should always seek a college degree that can either (1) help their current career, (2) redirect their career, or (3) jumpstart their career. The first step in choosing the correct online degree major is by defining what your true passions and interests are. Having an understanding of what areas of study truly interest you can help you decide what path you want to continue on.
2. Check out what online colleges have to offer!Once you have figured out what you are interested in, start doing research. Online colleges and online universities should have an online degree catalog that shows you a list of all the online degrees that they have to offer.
For example, top online college providers such as Southern New Hampshire University and ASU Online offer detailed and extensive online degree catalogs that have quick descriptions of each online degree, associated costs, necessary requirements, and other relevant information.
3. Meet with an online college enrollment adviser!Once you have narrowed down your options to a couple of online colleges and perhaps even some online degrees, consider reaching out to an enrollment adviser. Reach out with a quick phone call or an email. In times of coronavirus, you may even be able to set up a quick zoom call with the online college adviser.
Online college counselors can help you figure out what is most important to you and guide you in the right direction when it comes to choosing your online degree.
