Find a professional working in the field of interest and ask them if you may interview them about the career. Shadowing them in their
workplace (with permission) is usually very beneficial and enlightening. (Sample interview questions)
Talk with students already in the major, preferably upperclassmen that are well into the degree. Ask them questions about what the major is like and what you can expect down the road.
Join a student interest group involved in your major of interest and attend a meeting. Oftentimes students that
are involved in the major and related extracurricular activities have good answers
to questions about what the major is really like.
Visit the Career Center...
to discuss the types of jobs that you could get with your majors of interest
to take the Strong Interest Inventory and have a Career Center counselor interpret
the results for you
