If you're having trouble narrowing down your interests to just one major, a degree in general studies may be your best option. Majoring in general studies gives you the opportunity to study a variety of subjects while deciding which one may lead to a fulfilling career path.

Earning a degree in general studies allows you to take classes in the arts, social sciences, and biological and physical sciences. Some schools allow you to choose a concentration and take more courses in an area you find particularly interesting.

Because this degree is so broad, career opportunities are limitless. Some students enter the workforce immediately while others return to school to further their education. General studies majors sometimes work in teaching, marketing, psychology, law, or event planning, but there's really no right or wrong path - it simply depends on what you're interested in.
