When we had a class discussion about what is a real major and what is not, I couldn’t stop thinking of the question “what are you going to do with a degree in _____?” So many people directly relate college majors with careers and think that the major isn’t valid if they can’t think of a job that matches the major. I believe that college major does not always determine what career you are going to have after you graduate. I’m majoring in Economics, but that does not mean I have to become an economist. Did you guys know that the founder of Paypal, Peter Thiel majored in Philosophy? Studying a certain major is pursuing education for a subject the student is passionate about, not solely making a basis for a career after the student graduate. Certain majors like Philosophy, History, or Religious studies often gets criticized for not having a clear connection to a career, but those people who criticize needs to understand that there are still values to these majors that enlighten students and they should not be look down on for any reason. So to answer the class discussion question, I don’t believe there is such thing as a fake major.
