changing majors and schools

Question Posted Wednesday August 26 2009, 11:55 am

I've been at school for a week now and I'm really feeling like I didn't make the right choice. I moved 5 hours away to go to this school and my parents are paying a ton of money which is making me feel horrible about even considering this but I really don't feel like I'm in the right place and now that I've started classes I don't feel like I'm in the right major either. I'm an architecture major and I just feel like it's way too much responsibility for me to handle. I will still always love architecture but I'm not sure if I want it to be my career. I really think I'm going to change my major and go to a different school but I need some help coming up with something to do with my life.

-I like small kids but don't know if I would want to go into elementary education although from the time that I was 6-12 thats what I wanted to do.
-I love all aspects of art but I don't want to be a starving artist and I don't think I have the skills to compare with other people majoring in art.
-I don't want to do anything in the medical field
-I think being a real estate agent would be fun but the income isn't really dependable because of the fluctuating housing market.
-Before architecture I was going to major in interior design but I think only big cities have a demand for that type of career and I hate cities, correct me if I'm wrong.

I need some help!
I don't want to be undeclared, and pay money at a school while I decide what to do but I'm not sure if my mom would just let me take a semester or a year off while I decide.

As for your problem with right now - take your core classes this year (math, science, english, history) that way you haven't wasted this year.

About a future major..

What not try for art education. It's with young kids if you apply to elementary schools, but you'll get to teach them something you really love - art :]. And you could do it at junior high or high school levels as well.
