xKiMix since right now we have plenty choices of courses, try to ask yourelf on what do you love most. we can always choose courses that we want to but ended up not loving it otherwise... and that would be remorseful spending years for nothing. we always wanted to be like "that" but unreachable on our capabilities. now allow me to take this chance to advise you, choose a major that you really love most, that you can in accordance with you ability and be the best of it, and be who you are becuase success can be measure by the things we love doin.

i graduated as an accountancy by majoring accounting, and now working.. since i find my work really boring because it is routinary and doesnt give me much chanllenge.. i've decided to proceed to a law course while earning. right now, it gives me much pressure but yeah pretty enjoying, because once you're pressured.. you would appreciate 'hardship"..

that's all folks. :salut:

wow, everyone's going into so many different and hard fields. I'm majoring in .......................LIBERAL STUDIES---- yes, I want to teach!!! :D Right now I'm finishing up my general ed. and transferring in 1 month to start my undergraduate. Stupid me, I really wanted to go into this area but I was thinking about "money". I don't know about teachers' salaries in your countries, but mine, we don't get paid very well. So I ended up stumped on my career path for about 1 year until I came to my senses. I hope everyone pursuing their major actually enjoy/love it. I know money is an issue with all jobs so good luck to everyone!!!

International Studies as major for interest
Accounting and finance as minor for financial gain :P

my family wanted me to go to midical school, but i can't stand the idea of "you have to play with dead bodies if you want to learn!"

Good luck with your choice

I'm a humanities major with a minor in Japanese.

You can't really do much with a humanities degree unless you're working with literature... I would have done a Japanese major but I didn't have time to take Chinese too (they require you take both). Humanities is fun though!

Yeah, about all the Humanities really does is either prepare you to teach or go on to grad school. Personally, I've found that education majors are the bane of all liberal arts majors. They are the reason that if you say you are a *insert humanity or social science area here* major, the knee-jerk reaction is, "Oh, are you going to teach?"

Thanks again for your wonderful replies!!!! At this moment i'm being pressured to choose my major ASAP :cry: my parents want me to choose a major soon, very soon, since they want me to focus on just one major by the start of the next sem. Also today i talked to a counselor about transferring, and WOW i have sooo many classes i have to take! hopefully i can pass them all...this is when i really miss high school, and since i did soo good in high school i should have got straight to a UC. All those AP classes i took are useless!!! :glare:

Hell, I would have majored in Japanese if my school had it ;__;

I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology w/ Japanese minor. I have to say it, I probably wouldn't have used Japanese for anything if I'd have majored (I'd have double majored) but I just would have wanted it b/c I enjoyed taking the classes (same for psych). I'm picky and I couldn't think of any major that I was smart enough for, made decent money, and wouldn't make me feel like a drone going to work daily. I still didn't win, but I just didn't like anything else so I ended up in psych >_<

Here I am, over a year after graduating and losing each skill in Japanese day by day. I really miss taking Japanese classes and want to take private ones......but I have to think about grad school. But first, GRE's, then deciding what the hell to go to grad school for ;___; And how the hell am I going to have time to do this? I still have some pondering to do :alcoholic:

I had no idea what I wanted to major in, choosing to study near or away from home was more tough for me. Im now a semester shy of graduating in pharmaceutical chem .... yet I stil wish I did something different ^^; My folks joke how I have the heart of an eternal student as I wana do a PGC afterwards and forever be stuck in the education system.

i got my BS in computer science with a minor in math in the spring. i seemed to have enjoyed math more than cs in the latter half of the undergrad experience. i guess i didn't care much about some of the courses i was required to take, like programming language theory, systems programming, databases, etc. while on the other hand, learning about groups, fields, modules, vector spaces, etc. from math was mighty interesting and enjoyable (even despite my math profs being much more difficult that my cs ones).

before math, i wanted to minor in biology. i guess i had an awesome experience in AP bio back in high school. and i'm still quite interested in molecular bio. but i didn't minor in bio because it would take too long because i had to take organic chem before anything. for math, i already had to take calculus, so i was well on my way.

right now i'm still in school and in the middle of my first finals week as a graduate student. i again picked cs. i don't know what i'll do my master's thesis on at the moment though. my school now has a few medical and bioinformatics profs, so it could be a good chance to throw bio back into the mix. alternatively i could do something communications/networks related, as i have the math background for it and have already gotten my feet wet in error correcting coding research.

i'm just hoping i'll be able to find a good job here in hawaii after school is all said and done. i don't want to leave hawaii! i'm not looking to get rich, just something that can pay the bills... and my student loans haha

I was originally a computer science major. :) I couldn't handle the program at my college and dropped it... I still dabble with computers and such tho. I have a certificate in Digital Imaging and I'm still trying to finish up my BA's. If life goes as planned, I'm going to graduate in Spring with a Communications and Japanese Studies double major.

i'm reading this and going, "gosh! you guys are all so smart." i'm a political science major who just failed about two finals because I was too sick to study. after i graduate, i'm planning to get my teaching credential and maybe pursue a Ph.D in the same subject as well. Maybe i might get an master's in counseling.

AP classes really only matter if you pass the AP exam, and sometimes you have to pass with a four to actually get college credit for the courses passed. i took the government AP exam but was only given elective credit because all california colleges require students to take the political science course. they lost my scores for my US history so i still may have to take US history.
in my opinion, it's much better to bypass community college because you won't need to take unnecessary courses. of all my friends who have gone to community college, i can only name three who have gotten out so community college will take a while too.

My major right now is Health Service Management and Community Development. It was nursing until I figured it was a lot of hard work and very stressfull. Hopefully, I will get to head a community program with emphasis on women and children's health.

yeah it does. it adds up on your educational backround. it feels good when you obtained high degrees coz you would probably gain respect *the one you deserve* from people surrounds you. but be it noted that obtaining high degrees doesnt follow with being successful but it is a matter of *dealing* on ways how to get what you want in your life because after all, "happiness" is what we are really seeking for.

Huhh, in my school computer engineering is harder than computer science because comp engineering have to take same classes as comp science + electrical engineering classes (which I hate by the way, but have to take this next qtr) Uhh why do I need to learn ECE stuff when I'm gonna be a software programmer. Oh and its also true that there's like only 10 girls in my class with 70 guys...y do girls tend to major in nursing anyways.

Uhh Filipino women need to find other careers than just a nurse. That's not the only career there is. Sheez I have like 4 friends who wants to become nurses and most of my aunts are nurses. OMG is nursing that easy or great???

Also I have a question about the certification that you can get? Do you take those after or before you get your degrees and where? Plus I like my major, even though it is very hard sometimes because it seems my friends have more free time in their hands with their majors while I work my butt off and spend so many hours programming. Though, having breaks like getting a really good job in the future will pay off everything.

Tooo much rambling...anyways please tell me what you guys think too.

Graphic Design here, It's a tremendous amount of work, mostly self-study, which I don't mind at all, but I can see some people hate having to be "responsible for tutoring yourself".

Also I LOVE interning, it's really a great way to meet cool people as well as improve my skills, which is great!

Most of my friends don't know what they want to major in, they are just going to school just to be in school so their parents can get off their backs, which I find around 90% of the people who attend college/university do!

I'm assuming that you want a career in programming/software development. I graduated a year ago with a BS in Computer Science, and have been working for a year and a half.

I think certifications are a waste of time. It just means that you're replacable by another person holding the same certification.

EDIT: I heard that certifications matter if you're planning to have a career as a sysadmin.

I'd advise you to build a "portfolio" instead, a la art students. I build mine by contributing code to open source projects. My resume says that I contribute to the Linux sound driver, GNOME sound server, and Gentoo Linux. I personally think these mean much more than certifications.

But to answer your question, a friend of mine got a certification while he's in univ. Most people in the industry that believes in certifications obtain them afterwards. Their company often help them by paying them through the prep classes and the exam. Where? Ask Google.

Good luck.

Computer Science was my major but everything is being out source to India and Outside the US and more and more students continue to enroll and graduate from that field. Its really competative out there when looking for work. You need to be the best of the best in order to survive in the computer field or any none medical field. Thats I why decided to swtich to the medical field I love helping people. Plus no matter what happens people get sick all the time and speaking of time. People die all the time so I bet there is a high demand for morticitians or embalmers. There is money to be made even in death..... I know its a morbid thought but its reality.

I used to be a double major in biochemistry and Chinese Language and Literature, but got bored rather quickly after completing many chem requirements, so I dropped it last semester. Now, I'm just a Chinese major, which is perfect because I get to spend a year abroad doing whatever I want. College is great when you get to fill up your schedule with classes you find interesting and your time doing whatever pleases you. :thumright:

Hehe.. i'm also a major in Law & Economics, but also in Law and Society.. I'm thinking more to a lawyer (criminal and corporate)

At first i thought when i was 7 i wanted to become a lawyer then i worked at my uncles computer store and did computer technician for 7 years. So from 7-10 it was lawyer then 10-17 comp technician but then because i got sooooo fed up with fixing comps i decided to become a lawyer after watching Law and Order all those years. My ex ex gf also wanted to become a forensic scientists so i thought hey i could use her for help in my cases hehe..

Not Japanese no. My English wouldn't be this great if i was. :lol :unsure: Joke.

I've actually been studying Japanese for 10 years now which should mean i'm fantastic at it but i'm not really. At the moment i'm writing my dissertation on SMAP, gender and sexuality in Japan. Seriously.

I'd like to think my Japanese is about 65/75% ok. I mean, in all aspects - reading, writing, speaking etc.

I'm probably a lot worse in reality.

its all good! thanks for sharing. btw was it hard when you were in Japan? cuz thats one of the things Im worried about is that if I go to Korea to teach English I'd be by myself and God knows how hard it is to communicate with people if you cant speak the language that well... I'd feel homesick...

I think due to my background it was quite hard at times. I'm a Muslim so going to a country where drinking is a BIG thing for getting together was a bit annoying at times. Thankfully i had some great foreign friends who made things easier.

I think if you want to go to a different country say Japan, you should be able to speak at least SOMETHING because in a lot of cases many of the people don't speak English themselves. A little bit goes a long way.

Scanky-chops: Pretty cool topic for a dissertation, seriously! I'd like to do research on Japanese entertainment as well, just there's no chance to do it where I live -_-´ So for now I just study Japanese. :)

I'll be a Communication-Journalism major in a month and a half. Currently trying to find a field of study that would allow me to take a graduation level abroad (with a scholarship if possible). Any suggestions, anyone? Bio and chemistry aren't really my thing..

I'm majoring in Cartooning.

Other places like to call it fancy names, like Sequential Art, but Cartooning is what it is and it's what I study.

That's understandable, Kimi. Most students change their majors at least once in college, and a lot end up in an entirely different field than their degree would suggest. I'll second what someone else said-- degrees are a dime a dozen nowadays; they're expected. The two biggest tips we can give you, find something you like and something you're good at. That should narrow it down. You can figure that out by taking a smorgasboard of courses. Take some of this, some of that, even some classes you might not expect you'd enjoy or a totally new subject. (Trying out different jobs is an even better test; you learn a lot about yourself that way.) Something will eventually catch your fancy. Just make sure it's in demand.

Me, I think college is for many people a waste of time and not worth the years' of loans. That's why I dropped my chem major. I may go into nursing- it's in demand, you can get tested after two years, and frankly, I'm tired of paying to learn. I'm sick of the college scene. "Real world," my foot. I'm ready to get paid. If you think about it, we spend something like a third of our lives in school, and for what? Training for the workplace. So find a job you'll like, learn it, and get out of there, girl. Just pray it's worth the debt.

Thanks for the advice!!! I would go into nursing, but there is soooo many people taking, since i'm still a freshmen, i'm afraid it won't be much of a demand when i'm done with the coarse. Like as i said, in my college, 1 out of 5 students are taking nursing as a major. And almost everyone i as from other schools are also taking nursing....
