Greetings Students and Families,
Another college application season will soon come to a close, as our high school seniors ’20 ponder their college enrollment options in anticipation of beginning their undergraduate journey this fall. Under separate cover, you can read about some important tips related to seniors — including Gap Years, Financial Aid and whether in these uncertain times of our COVID-19 pandemic- whether colleges will resume face-to-face instruction on college campuses.
Today, I want to talk about college majors. As regular readers of my blogs and newsletters know, I often encourage students building their college admissions plan to focus on learning more about major areas of study that leverage interests developed through exploration.
One of my earlier resources can be found here:
I write often about multi-disciplinary teams – and what that means exactly are the ways in which we solve problems. Organizations look to hire undergraduates who have many skills building teams of expertise that allow for a unique and different lens to address problems that inspire creativity leading to innovations that change and shape our world. This point reveals itself very sharply in our current Coronavirus pandemic.
Aspiring health care professionals: nurses, physicians and public health specialists are on the forefront of this battle for a cure. And by now you probably can name the most famous epidemiologist – and if you can’t I have no words to imagine what bubble you are in at the moment.
Professions and Majors Having an Impact in COVID19
I share a number of interesting articles showing the role of artists, scientists, geneticists, engineers, business majors and computer scientists all involved in addressing this crisis. I invite sophomores and juniors to explore what an educational path might entail at your current ‘dream school’ if you were to major in any of these fields.
I invite you to schedule an online college counseling session with me to begin your college major research, shape your balanced list of colleges and being your Common Application process and college essays.
