Degrees are defined by type (AA, BA, BS, etc...), and also by discipline. The discipline is referred to as “field of study” or "major". For example, I graduated from Concordia University with a B.A. in Communication. A "bachelor of arts" is the type of degree I earned. And, communication was my "major" or field of study. While some students have a clear vision of their indented field of study, many students have literally no clue.
Selecting a field of study is often the most difficult aspect of the college experience. But, you can also have the time of your life on the journey to figure it all out! Here is my best advice for you if you are still in that "I've got nothing" category:
ASSESSMENT 1: Interest Profiler - a friendly self-assessment tool designed to help you find a good occupational match based on your interests and skills. It includes values, interests, and skills inventories.
ASSESSMENT 2: The Keirsey Temperament Sorter - The KTS®-II is the most widely used personality instrument in the world. It is a powerful 70 question personality instrument that helps individuals discover their personality type. The KTS-II is based on Keirsey Temperament Theory™, by Dr. David Keirsey. Respond to each item as honestly as possible. Follow the instructions for submitting your responses to receive your results. The mini-report is free and contains a great deal of helpful information. The site offers more comprehensive reports for a fee. But, I think the free report is sufficient. The Keirsey Website offers detailed information on each personality type including best “job fits”.
