About This Quiz

Choosing a field of study is not an easy decision. Many colleges and universities have over 100 choices of majors and degree programs. College is a costly journey, and you don't want to be left at the end with a major or career path for which you have no passion. To help you decide, you might start with a handful of subjects you like; maybe make a pros-and-cons list! You'll still be left with a multitude of decisions within that area, but it'll help narrow things down for you. 

Maybe you'll find that you are best suited for the rough-and-tumble world of business. Or maybe you'll realize that all those historical-fiction novels you craved when you were younger meant you were destined to study something in the field of social sciences. Or maybe while you were being chastised for always doodling on your quizzes and tests during high school, you were actually preparing for a career in the arts. Or maybe you'll discover that every time you took something apart to see how it worked, you were setting yourself up for a major under the umbrella of math and science. Whatever your result, you can see it as a starting point for further research and discussion. 

College is a long road, and choosing a field of study is a big first step. Put in a cram session on this quiz, and we'll try and guess what you should study in college!
