Eighty percent of college-bound students have yet to choose a major, according to Dr. Fritz Grupe, founder of MyMajors.com. Fifty percent of those who do declare a major end up changing it, often more than once. A four-year college degree is hard enough to get in four years, and changing majors often leads to additional years of schooling, with all the tuition and loans such additions entail.

Thus current college students and those who are college bound can benefit from any tools to help them find a major that is a good fit. The College Majors Scorecard does just that. This 147 item assessment leads directly to the 49 different majors most common at colleges across the country. Based on the kinds of work activities that each major is most likely to lead to, the CMS helps students pick a major by making a connection between their knowledge and abilities, their choice of major, and their future career options.

Using an innovative, detachable scorecard design, the CMS is easy to score and easy to interpret. In addition, it provides suggestions and worksheets for further research and matches up directly with the College Majors Handbook, also published by JIST.
