College Board, Slides presented at the College Board National Forum (Oct 26, 2011)
Presented at the College Board National Forum, October 26, 2011. Choosing a college major is challenging enough, without stopping to consider the impact it has on a student's college experience and career choice. To provide support during this major decision, participants in this session will develop strategies to facilitate students in making an appropriate major choice. Based on research and recommendations from high school and college educators, participants will discuss interventions and best practices. Participants will focus on factors related to major choice and retention (with an emphasis on STEM majors), and will investigate some noteworthy findings related to students with undeclared majors.
