I'm still trying to decide what to major in for college. For those that have their degrees or are working on them, what did you major in and why? How is your career coming along?

For those who haven't started college yet, what are you considering as a major.

I'm not yet in college, but I'm pretty set on majoring in music education. I want to get my doctorate and teach in a high school to start and eventually migrate to being a college professor.

Actually I'd rather be famous... But that's the plan for "reality".

I am in my third year of university and focusing on Anthropology/Sociology. My main focus inside of that is Social equality and the social aspects surrounding it. I'm really interested in the writings of Marx, Weber etc.

I graduated last year with a degree in Construction Management. I also received a minor in Business.

I love it! I currently work in the construction field (as a manager, lol). You wouldn't believe how technologically advanced this industry can be.

I'm studying Computer Information Systems. It's a drag at the beginning of the course then it gets really detailed.

Hey, i was about to post a question about college majors but now that i see this thread ill post it in here.

I'm a junior in HS and im pretty sure of what i want to major in. I hope to double major in History [roman, greek, maybe medieval] and also in Alternative Fuel Source Technology. I know about some good history schools buy i am really uncertain about the alternative fuel part. Are there any good technical / major universities that are good in this field, or should I look for a school that is good in Mechanical engineering? Any suggestions or comments? Thanks a bunch

Well I went to an apprenticeship for the electrical industry years ago and have almost enough credits for an associates degree.But if I were to finish out college I would go for electrical engineering since I have worked in that trade right out of high school.

I'm in Criminal Justice and Clinical Forensics. Fun classes and great subject matter if you want to go down that road. It will keep you interested.

I am currently majoring in Journalism, it is really fun and you get to meet a lot of interesting people. The stuff you learn is really interesting as well, i.e. how the media works. My Mass Comm college only lets in 50 journalism students a semester though, so if you are going to a university like that you'll need to keep up on your work a lot.

Studied mechanical engineering but never recieved a degree (yet). I'm considering signing up at the local university. They've got a really good program.

If you're still uncertain about what you want to take, you may want to check out what the job market looks like in the future in certain areas.

You will want to choose a career that is in high demand, but make sure it's a field that you'll enjoy. You don't want to choose a career on money alone. There's no self-satisfaction in those areas. Money, yes. Hapiness, no.

What he said. Only replace Clinical Forensics with Homeland Security. The classes definitely keep you entertained and it's good stuff to learn. I think that it's a pretty open field depending on which direction to go. But I'm not sure which way I want to go myself but that's what I am currently majoring in.
