Today in class we discussed what we believe to be a real major. At first I thought to myself, whichever ones are offered at school and lead to a career. Then once we got into deeper conversations I realized this is a much broader argument. Many people argue that the toughness or amount of tests or hours spent studying deciphers if a major is real. I could not disagree more. There are many majors that do not require you to take a test once a week yet you have to work at a school for an entire day or write multiple papers a week. These majors are still not only hard but they also very important in the world. There are also many majors that do not necessarily lead you to a specific job. Although you won’t know exactly what you are doing once you graduate this is still a “real major”. I believe that any major that teaches you something you are interested in and can use to benefit from or teach others is considered “real”. There are many jobs needed in this world and it takes a certain type of person to not only work for a specific job, but also to do it well.
