Considering changing majors. Need help?

<p>I'm currently a freshman in Elementary/Special Education. I've already been visiting the elementary school we have on campus. I've always loved kids and I love the camp I've been working at for the past 5 years. For some reason I'm just not happy in the classroom. I feel uncomfortable and uncertain about teaching for the rest of my life.</p>

<p>I was thinking about changing my major to music management so I'd hopefully be working in the music industry somehow. The only problem is that I'm unsure about that too. I'm unsure because of the current state of the music industry as well as how difficult it would be to make a living. I have a feeling I'd really enjoy it though.</p>

<p>I don't know what to do and I'm so lost. I used to know what I wanted to do and it really feels awful not having a clear direction anymore.
What should I do?</p>

<p>I was in the same spot as you. I started off as a Secondary Education major but have changed three times since then, and I'm now an English/Creative Writing major.</p>

<p>I would say do what you think will make you happy. Depending on the state you plan to teach in, you can always get post-degree certification for teaching with a bachelor's degree (that's what I plan on doing as a career to fall back on if I ever need to). Maybe look at your state's community college's for programs like that. And don't worry about not having a clear direction - college does that with all the doors it seemingly opens. Just keep on going and things will become clear with time. Enjoy college while you can!</p>
