College Essay About Academic Interests

Crafting the “Academic Interests” Response



How do you write a college essay about academic interests?



In addition to asking applicants about which majors interest them and their potential future plans, some schools ask applicants to write a college essay about academic interests. While not as common as some of the other supplemental essays, this essay is an important component of a strong application. Here are a few Do's and Don'ts for tackling these essays.


DO:


Think carefully about your choice of academic interest!

See this as an opportunity to reveal more about yourself!

Relate this to the college and their programming.

Show, don’t tell.


DON’T:

Worry that your answer is a commitment to what you will study.

Sweat that your answer is not very specific!

Provide a confusing answer. Concision is key.


These tips are especially important as you navigate scholarship apps that are specific to particular interests or hobbies! Best Wishes!
