About This Quiz

Ah, college. When you arrive, you take a variety of classes that include some subjects you love and some that you explore out of curiosity — as well as a few that you hate but have to take anyway. And generally, you don't have to declare your major until the second year. 

While choosing a major can cause a lot of angst, bear in mind two things. First, your major is not your future and you can always pivot later: For instance, plenty of English majors don't deal with literature in their eventual careers, and there's no rule that precludes philosophy majors from starting an e-commerce business. Secondly — and here's where this quiz comes in — even if you aren't supremely confident of the major you want to choose, you do know yourself, and that means you might have a good idea hidden in your subconscious. 

While choosing a major isn't the be-all and end-all of your life, it is a choice that must be made — and it's one that will likely lead to plenty of opportunity and self-discovery. In this quiz, answer some yes-or-no questions, and we'll guess your major. And if you haven't picked one yet, well, perhaps we can help point you in the right direction!
