What do I want to study?
The academic subject that you end up studying is called your “major” at a U.S. college or university. It is an abbreviation for “major area of study”. It is difficult to know what you want to study, as it is an indication of what you want to do as a career, and you may not be sure about that yet.
If you are hoping to earn a Bachelor’s Degree, one thing to remember is that in U.S. universities, you will need to take a selection of general courses as part of your first two years of study. You will need to indicate on your application for admission as to what subject you would like to study, but sometimes these required general classes will cause you to be interested in a new area of study. It is okay to change your area of study (major) after you have arrived at the university, but it is important to talk with the university’s international student advisor about the appropriate way to do this.
