I'm don't know what I want to major in and yet I'm going to be a junior. Feeling scared
In Fall 2020, I'm going to a junior in college as a transfer from community college with an associate degree in general studies. When I applied to the university, I picked accounting for my major. Now I'm unsure if I want to continue accounting because the reason why I picked it is because I've always loved math while growing up. Now I have a slight interest in criminology because the though of solving crime fascinate me. Now I'm afraid that what if I don't like my accounting major and will have to stick to it forever and that's what terrify me the most. Going after for something I thought I was going to like. Now I can't decided between accounting or criminology. I feel like time is running out to decide and I don't feel confident at all with my decision. Scared to change my major if I actually don't like accounting0 replies
