Your question is a good one, but you must look inward for the answer. No one can, or should, tell you what to major in. However, I know how much pressure you might be under to find a major and make such important life decisions about your future when you first start college. I implore you to take a breath and relax for a moment. The pressure that family and even teachers and professors can put on students to make major decisions can be overwhelming, I know. But I encourage you to ask yourself this instead: What am I passionate about? What could I do EVERY day, without pay, just because I love it so much? What am I so good at that others come to me for advice about it?
Start there. Start with passion. Start with what excites and motivates you. If you start there, then you can investigate different career paths that your passion might lead to. Once you figure out your passion - that thing you would do any time, any day, as often as possible - then visit the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook and browse the different occupations and fields that seem to match what you love. Most of the jobs listed there also list preferred majors, but you'll be happy to know that most careers do NOT require a specific major, which means you can choose a major that excites you, along with your passion. You might be able to back yourself into a good major by first figuring out your passion, and then taking your passion into some occupation research that will lead you to a sensible major.
For more motivation and inspiration on finding your passion first, check out Larry Smith's blunt and eye-opening TED Talk about the importance of finding and following your passion: "Why you will fail to have a great career."
Now go find your passion! The major and career path will follow. :)
