"Every decision you make – every decision – is not a decision about what to do. It's a decision about who you are..."
-Neale Donald Walsch, Author of the series Conversations with God (b. 1943)
Choosing the "right" college major can be a challenging, confusing, and exciting experience. It's often hard to decide right out of high school what you want to study for the next four years, let alone what career you want to pursue after college graduation. It's not uncommon for college students to change their major three or four times before they graduate. In fact, twenty-five percent of college freshmen enter college without declaring a major at all.
At Colorado Christian University, declaring a major is more than just deciding "what you want to be when you grow up". Choosing a major field of study is about finding your purpose and place within the world. It's about fulfilling God's calling for your life. It's about preparing yourself for the journey ahead.
If you're unsure of your next step, Colorado Christian University offers you the unique experience of being advised by a Life Directions Center (LDC) Advisor for your entire CCU experience. One of the roles the LDC Advisor will play in your life is being a mentor, assisting you through the process of making a well-informed, Christ-centered decision about your major and future career.
LDC Advisors help you explore your own individual abilities, gifts, interests, skills, values, personality, and purpose – characteristics that play a crucial role in determining academic direction. We believe you have a unique, God-given purpose and it takes time and patience to develop a vision for that purpose.
