Things are different for college students today. When I was in college, nobody talked about recession-proof majors because there weren't so-called recession-proof jobs to prepare for. Now, students are being encouraged to choose majors like education, accounting, nursing, and biology, so they'll have an easier time getting a job after graduation.
The job market is the pits, and many of us who graduated into a welcoming real world are dealing with the current realities of unemployment and job uncertainty. Do you regret not choosing what's now considered a recession-proof major, or would you select the same major you did despite its vulnerability in the current market?
