What major should college students be encouraged to pursue ? Should they pursue subjects that interest them , or the courses that seem most likely to get a good jobs ?

On the other hand , at the begining there might be some obstacle for the people who choose major based on their interests, but as long as they can persevere , they might find the new point to develop their career . For example ,an art students who is not supposed to quickly find a job , doesn’t have to become a famous artist to be success , which is top notch of a career pyramid , very hard to achieve. But it is not hard for them become a gallery manager , a commercial designer or some other domain which relates to the art , where they can enjoy the glamor of the art as making money.

Which courses to choose to pursue is a complicated and important decision since it might determine how your future life will be . Interest is the first thing to think about , but still some other elements to be considered, such as the people’s own talents , character , the family economy situation. It is unrealistic for people who is utterly ignorant of music staff to pursue the music courses just because he/she likes a certain rock star or song,and claims to love music .if family economy situation is not good , it is better to avoid some expensive major like fashion design except there are other way to resolve the financial issue ,otherwise it will heavy the aggravate the burden , finally results in the horrible consequence like being forced to quit school.
Interest is the best teacher that can give you motivation and direction of your future , while do not omit the other elements when determinate which courses to pursue. Once we find the interest and determine to pursue it, we have to adhere to it till success.
