Please let me know if the colon is used properly in the following sentence.


"At Smith College, I would like to explore two fields that I am extremely passionate about: Information Systems and Business."


If not, would a comma be better or should I rewrite the sentence?

Strict grammarians discourage ending a sentence in a preposition, but it's more custom than a hard and fast rule. 'I would like to explore two fields about which I am extremely passionate.' would be more proper, but it's almost pretentious.
