What Was Your College Major?

I'm Asking: What Was Your College Major?

A bunch of my college friends are coming into town tomorrow and their visit has me reminiscing about the time when we all met. My friends majored in subjects across the board, from economics to dramatic arts. I loved my college major and would choose it again in a heartbeat, though I know many others who wish they had chosen differently. What was your college major? Would you have selected it if you could go back and do it again?

I majored in history with a focus on 19th century UK history, which I wouldn't change for the world. I think that the approach to teaching it has vastly improved in postmodern times; it's no longer just what famous people did and the dates upon which they did them. It's a completely fascinating subject that blends all the liberal arts disciplines, so you gain great understanding of psychology, biological sciences, religious philosophy, architecture, war studies, etc. I loved every second of it and it trained me to be a great researcher and writer. My minor was Art History because I went to undergrad in London where some of the best art in the word resides, so instead of sitting in front of slides, we would have our lectures in front of the original work itself. It was incredible. That's also another reason I studied history--half of our lectures were walks through historic streets, seeing the actual locations where epochal events took place. So it really brought everything I was studying to life.

Psychology and Gender Studies. I started as a Biology major, then switched to Pre-Med sophomore year. I dropped that pretty quickly (thank Organic Chem) and ended up with Psychology. I wish I had taken more math/statistics and computer courses.

I'm a BA of Biological Sciences with a minor in Psychology. I love it! I'm especially excited because I get to take a course on embryology and another on physiological psych next semester! I don't graduate for two years yet, but I'm looking into maybe becoming a Physician's Assistant with an ob/gyn focus or a genetic counselor.

I majored in French and minored in Art History. I'm going back soon to get my Master's in either Art History or Museum Studies. My French degree turned out to be useful, I actually use my French as an underwriting technician.

I started out in international relations, which I LOVED, but I'm recently married so I don't want to do the traveling that is involved right now. I'm changing to Communications/public relations next year...hopefully there won't be any problems finding jobs when I graduate.

I had a double major in politics and economics. I don't regret picking those two areas of study but I don't use either in the line of work I'm in now!

Wow! Look at all of you! I'm envious of all of you women who went to college. I never did go, and it's something I'm so sorry I didn't do (not for the degree necessarily but for the life experience) which is why I'm really encouraging my own children to go to college. I was never encouraged to go ("back then" it wasn't presented as an option. Women were supposed to get married and have children, according to my Dad anyway - thankfully my Dad has since changed his opinion on this but it doesn't help me now lol). You all should be very proud of yourselves!!

I was a media studies major and I minored in politics. Even though I'm removed from both of those areas, I would choose them again. As I have come to realize, your college major is less of a predictor of what you'll do in the future than your own determination. I'll be focusing in on a graduate degree soon, which I'm relying on more to take me down my desired career path.
