Are some majors considered real, while others are considered fake? In other words, are there majors that do not challenge students and are considered “fluff”. In my opinion there are not fake majors. All majors are challenging and real. The most important aspect is that the student is studying a subject they enjoy and are passionate about. Yes, there are some majors that are harder than others, but all college classes challenge their students. Real majors are considered ones that result in landing a job and achieving financial success. In my opinion, one should pursue a career in which they have interest, not just to be successful and live a comfortable life. The major should not determine ones success. Success is derived from ones willingness to work hard and exercise the skills they possess. My roommate at school began college as an engineering major. She did not have a set interest in a particular major so therefore she decided to pick a major in which she would have financial success. After the first semester she realized how miserable she was and decided to change to human services and could not be happier. This shows we should not worry about whether a major is real or fake, or even judge someone based on his or her major. Majors should be chosen on the basis of interest.
