NO PAGE REQUIREMENT/ JUST GOOD RESEARCH AND FACTS ON MAJOR
Adjusted guidelines/requirements to text:
Conduct in-depth research on one major. Hopefully, the number one reason to complete your BS degree is personal satisfaction. Along with satisfaction, this degree will afford you opportunities. The purpose of this assignment is for you to project into the future where you want this degree to take you. I encourage you to think about graduate school and if that interests you, research the major that will best meet your educational goals.
