Change is probably the scariest thing in the world. Especially when we are comfortable in what we are used to. Going and changing that all up is scary. But what if you're not happy where you are? And if you are, what if you'd be happier somewhere else?
If you are not 100% happy with your degree program, you are allowed to switch, no matter how far along you are.
For me, I was only a couple months in when I switched from a Bachelors to an Associates. It was terrifying to me because I had no idea if I was doing the right thing.
But you know what? It was the right thing for me. And that's all that matters. Two years works better for me and at least I'll have something to show for all my work. If I want to add on later, I easily can.
But say you're in the last semester and decide to change — is that alright? Absolutely.
If you think changing will be the better choice for you, do it. It is your future that you're working towards. Don't let what other people say about it get in the way. Ultimately, it is up to you.
Whatever you do, do what is right for you. If that's changing how long it takes to get your degree (shorter or longer) or changing your major overall, I highly suggest you do what you feel passionate about.
If everyone is telling you it's a horrible idea, I'm in your corner. I'm here supporting you, cheering you on, and I know you can do it. Do what you're passionate about.
Go where you're being called — regardless of what change may follow with it.
