The “Major” Debate

Are some majors “real” majors while other majors are “fake” majors? The simple answer? Who cares. College students today are too hung up on “majors.” I don’t understand the fixation with proving that one major is somehow more tangible than any other major. A degree is a degree, unless you are studying something so specific that no other degree could possibly suffice (i.e. nursing). People skills and experience, as well as charm and work ethic will take you much farther than what field of study is scrawled on your degree. I am so sick of hearing that my courses are “easy” and that making Dean’s List is no big deal “for an English major.” If you are so peeved about it, maybe you should rethink your major and stop worrying about mine.
