I am currently in high school (tenth grade, to be specific), living in a country where it is the norm to immediately go to college after graduating from high school. My question is: How do you choose a college course that you won’t regret? I know that choosing something you enjoy doing is the most obvious thing to do, but my hobbies aren’t really good-career-material. So, I know I still have a few years to go, but I’d really like to choose some courses now so I can research colleges that offer them, etc. Thank you in advance for your answers!
I think you should compile a list of courses, most, if not all, that seem interesting to you (And if possible, include your hobbies). Then read on about those courses and narrow them down to those that you think are both interesting, enjoyable, and may lead to a good career. :)
This might not be the path that you're looking for, but after researching colleges that had programs I was interested in, I decided that I'd changed my mind in what I wanted to do and no longer knew. I ended up going to a college with a really well rounded undergraduate program. I took a lot of classes on subjects that I liked and didn't like and learned a lot in the process. Halfway through my sophomore year of college I finally decided what I thought was the best fit and have stuck with it, because of the requirements associated with the school I'm still on track to graduate in four years. I even had time to earn both a minor and a certificate. I'll be graduating in the spring. Don't sweat it too much. You'll have an awesome time. Good luck. Best regards, Em.
For me, it was like this-I looked for courses, where aren't things that were hard for me in high school. After that I looked if that course gives perspective job in the future and after that if there are things that I like. A like history and geography, but, of course, if I learn to be a historian, then the perspective to find a job decreases. So, I decided to look for something, that has history and geography, but from different perspective and in small portions, and so I found science of law. Science of law gives me variants of job and things I like. That was like week or two week research before the deadline. I was reading articles, compared the universities and with the research found where I are want to be.
