What is your major in college?

What are you majoring in? Or, what did you major in when you were in college? Did you enjoy it? If you went back to college, would you major in something else? I'm majoring in Spanish and Applied Linguistics. I really enjoy it, but sometimes I wish I were still an art major. If I had to start over again, I'd add a minor in art.

I'm majoring in Sociology. I'm really interested in how society works, what its problems are, and what I can do as a sociologist to help solve those problems. I'd eventually like to use my degree to do something to help underpriveleged youth get a better chance at life, or to provide housing for the homeless. I'm also considering a double-major in theatre, which is my other passion. It would be a lot of work, but I think it might be worthwhile in the long run. By the way, if you're still in school, it's never too late to add a minor. Sure, it'd be a little extra work. But if you're passionate about it, don't let the chance slip by you.

I did my BSc with specialization in animal biology. I didn't really want to focus on one group of animals because I like them all, so got to take courses in Ornithology, Mammology, Entomology... a bit of everything. I especially like the groups that don't get as much attention (invertebrates, reptiles). I was kind of disappointed that the university offered senior level courses focusing on each class of animals except reptiles and amphibians, I would have loved Herpetology... but generally, I loved my program.

I majored in art history when I went to college. Now I have a BA in Art History with a Museum Studies minor, and a BA in Studio Art. I just finished my MA in Art History. Art classes are fun, but there are a lot of pre-requisites. Luckily, many of them are the same for Art History and Studio, so I didn't need to take any more classes when I decided to go for the BA in Studio. Now I work as a photographic Assistant for the Photo dept. of a museum, so I guess my two BAs are getting use, but not my MA. This sucks because I owe almost 80,000 in student loans.

I majored in psychology in my undergrad. Right now I'm working on my masters in industrial/organizational psychology. If I could go back I would probably major in enviromental studies, marketing or mortuary science. haha, all seem totally unrelated but things I could see myself going into. I would have also loved to do pre-med and go to med school but I just didnt' have the strength in math to do it.

I took up Accountancy is college thinking I can handle the stress and hard work needed to graduate. But I was wrong, it's a very hard course but I managed to reach my 4th year when something happened that I need to stop school. I'm going back to college next semester to finish where I left off, but I will enroll in a different school. The college I last attended looks like a building ruin than a school. If I were to start college again, I'll chose Hotel & Restaurant Management or Tourism.

I'm currently majoring in German. Why, I don't know, but I do enjoy it, mostly. I wish I could start college over.

I went to college to study seamanship which would have qualified me as an officer of a ship.... i hated the idea of being away all the time and living with the same sexist gits all the time so i've left and pacing myself before i go into something else.

I have a BS in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I liked most of the classes but if I had the opportunity to go back to school I'd be like you and take more art classes. I took a few for fun last semester and loved it. I had a jewelry making class that I didn't learn many techniques in but made a lot of new friends and learned more about materials and constructing pieces. I've always wanted to take a ceramics and painting class as well.

I was a sociology major and I loved it. If I had it to do over again I think I might consider minoring in something. Maybe history or art history. I was on the crew team so that took up a lot of my time. I guess it's never too late to keep learning though!

I majored in Sociology and really enjoyed it. If I could go back, I might do an anthropology or film minor.

i am doing my BSC(IT). i am in my last year. It is a good course but it is beneficial if u do ur MCA after that. I would have taken commerce and done CA along with it. All i did by was enjoy by taking IT. Its tough but not that hard.I study just two hrs before the exam and still manage to pass.

When I was in college I majored in arly Childhood Development and Education. For the most part I liked it. We did a lot of interning at the school's daycare so there was a lot of interaction with children of all ages. I am currently on a waiting list to get into the Nursing program. After having my own children, Early Childhood Development wasn't really my cup of tea anymore.
