NoMajorDrama.com Helps Students Pick a Major Without Undue Stress

Picking a college major is a really hard decision for some people. Sure, a few people know what they want to study in college and do with their lives from the time they are six-years old. But for most of us, having to decide what you will study and then hopefully work as for the rest of your life when we enter college is a stressful process. Luckily, there’s a new app that can help make this process much simpler for you…or at least give you a little guidance.

NoMajorDrama.com is a new website that helps you select a college major by analyzing your skills and interests. It starts by asking you what things you are good at and what things you are interested in. After selecting up to seven things from these two categories, the app asks you to choose between your options. For example, the app asked me if I would rather study a major that had a high level of emphasis in non-English skills but little emphasis on animals, or the opposite. No Major Drama continues to evaluate your choices between the two hypothetical majors, and after you choose between all of your interests, it tells you more than 300 different majors and fields of study that would suit you.

I am studying advertising and Spanish language in college. After No Major Drama analyzed my responses, it recommended that I major in a foreign language, followed by a business recommendation. It was also correct in not recommending that I study science or mathematics, both of which are things that I do not particularly enjoy.

Common Religion College Majors for Students

BibleThere are several major fields of study available to college students. The more popular areas of study include criminal justice, business administration, accounting, nursing, and computer information systems and typically these types of majors are offered at most colleges across the country. Some of the more diverse degrees out there, however, shouldn’t be over looked, especially if it can lead a fulfilling life after your schooling is complete.

One area of study that students may not normally consider is a religious major, but if you are a religious or spiritual student, you can focus your education on your beliefs. There are several religious majors that students can choose from and contrary to what you might think, choosing a major in religion doesn’t mean you are restricted to being a minister or doing missionary work for your entire career. Some religious majors are for working in a church capacity, but not all. Religion major students can have a career in law, consulting, politics, writing and teaching, and a whole host of  other career paths. Read the rest of this entry »



How to Pick a College That Is Best for You

decisionAttention high schoolers: picking the right college for you is a huge decision, and it’s never too early to start narrowing down your choices.

There are roughly 4,300 colleges in the U.S., so it’s no surprise that college-bound students struggle to find a place to receive higher education. Finding the right college can be stressful, especially if you’re deciding between several colleges. Before you lose your cool, check out some of these tips that will help you narrow down your choices:

Choose between a big or small school: Size makes a big difference in your college experience. If you liked going to a small high school, choosing a liberal arts college with a population of less than 4,000 may be the way to go. On the other hand, if you felt like you couldn’t really branch out at your high school, choosing a large state school could be right for you.

Decide if moving away from home is best for you: Moving away from home for college is a great way to gain a sense of independence, but not all college students are ready to leave the nest. If you’re already self-sufficient, going to an out-of-state school should be no problem. But if you are a person who works best with warm familial support, consider finding a college that is close to home. Read the rest of this entry »
