What Can I do With a Major in….?

Let’s face it, unless you are studying, engineering, nursing or accounting, there are usually no particular career path  for your college major.  One often wonders what can I do with a major in History, Psychology  or any of the other myriad of majors that are available at our nation’s  colleges and Universities?   After all isn’t that the point of a college degree:  to get a job?  Perhaps,  but I like Albert Einstein’s  idea:

“It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books. The value of an education is a liberal arts college is not learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.”

The idea  behind college  is to create a society of individuals with various  perspectives and points of view.  We need individuals to examine  our numerous issues with a myriad of frameworks and hopefully develop solutions.

The process of securing a four year degree is challenging in and of itself.  It becomes increasingly difficult if you are studying a subject that you dislike.     I encourage you to pursue your passion in college.  Find  additional activities or programs outside of your coursework to supplement your education by building or enhancing those skills sets employers deem desirable.
