Choose a U.S. city to visit for a weekend:

When you go to this city you just picked, which of these MUST you do?

Who would you most likely be traveling with?

Which of these art forms do you enjoy most?

Which of these topics was/is your favorite in grade school?

You are in charge of a city. Which of these areas would get most of your attention?

Which of these are you most adept at?

Which of these words best describes you?

What type of learner are you?

And finally... How much of an academic are you truly?

Music Performance or Business

Music Performance or Business

Whether you're a talented musician yourself or a full-on music lover, the M word is your life - and you should definitely major in either Music Business or Music Performance (or something in between). Rhythmic and passionate, when someone says the word "arts" your mind immediately goes to "music". You listen to your favorite tunes on a regular basis or play an instrument like your life depends on it, and will be so much happier if you pursue what it is that you truly love!

Film or Mass Communications

Film or Mass Communications

Whether you're a classic film buff or a passionate filmmaker yourself, you should absolutely major in Film Studies or Mass Communications! For you, the wondrous stories watched in theaters (or at home) are not "movies", they're "films" - and are a form of art. Even if that seems a bit snoodish to you, you still place films toward the top of your list of "most beloved things". Take that passion to heart and earn a degree within the art form you hold dear!

Business or Management

Business or Management

Organized, much? If there's an event to be had you bet your @$$ you're the first one to make a checklist - and you should definitely major in Business or Management! Quite possibly the most common degree referred to as the "most useful", you won't be sorry you put your innate ability to focus and incredible organizational skills to use. Companies are always hiring people with these degrees, so you kind of win even though this wasn't a "scored" quiz. Go you!

Writing or Journalism

Writing or Journalism

A natural born creative mind who expresses themselves best through writing and facts, you should definitely consider majoring in either Journalism or Creative Writing. In a world filled with strife and drama, you are the one to deliver the news, or capitalize on said events with a masterful fictional tale. Many people call themselves "writers", but you are of the sort who truly has a talent for conveying a focused message to others through words - a true rarity. Do the world a favor and put your skills to use with a writing-based degree!

Law or Criminal Justice

Law or Criminal Justice

If you haven't considered a career as a lawyer, police officer, or detective before now - you should start! A degree in some sort of Criminal Justice or Law would definitely suit you. Morally sound and passionate about equality and justice, we could use you in law enforcement. God knows we need more lawyers of your sort as well! You have a tendency to be either completely reserved or gushingly passionate - and that's just the type of fire the world needs in our upholders of the law!

Wildlife or History

Wildlife or History

Whether you're a champion of the outdoors or a feverish historian, you should definitely consider a major in either of these fields! Your mind is of an inadvertently adventurous makeup, whether you choose to journey in nature or through the pages of a book. You prefer actions over words, and have a distinct love for the natural world and its history. As our planet grows more populous, we certainly could use someone of your making to guide our populations in a more humane direction. Do us all a favor and make it so!

Marketing or Advertising

Marketing or Advertising

Passionate about persuasion? We can tell! You should definitely consider majoring in Marketing, Advertising, or a subsidiary thereof. Charismatic and persuasive, you find pleasure in reaching out to others and are truly captivated by a great ad design. You are a visual learner to the extreme, and tend to be very animated with what you're passionate about. You've been called ambitious on more than one occasion - Put it to good use and major in one of these fields!

Education or The Sciences

Education or The Sciences

Whether your intelligence is fact based or purely an abundance of common sense and problem solving skill, you should absolutely do us all a favor and major in a Science or in Education! Yours is a rare mind in that your capacity for learning is only rivaled by your ability to inspire this learning in others. Research what you love and channel your findings into the scientific community - or a classroom. You won't regret it!
