What did you study in the best four years of your life?
An academic major is the academic discipline to which an undergraduate student formally commits. A student who successfully completes all courses required for the major qualifies for an undergraduate degree. An academic major typically requires completion of a combination of prescribed and elective courses in the chosen discipline. In addition, most colleges and universities require that all students take a general core curriculum in the liberal arts. In the US, students are usually not required to choose their major discipline when first enrolling as an undergraduate. Normally students are required to commit by the end of their second academic year at latest, and some schools even disallow students from declaring a major until this time. Students put different thoughts into what they want for their major. For some it is based on going to grad school, whereas others plan to go straight to the work force. Majors can vary from college to college but overall they should prepare students for success. Take this quiz with random questions to see what your college major was (or should have been)! Answer questions like: What city would you most like to live in? What was your high school stereotype? What is your favorite genre of music? What did you want to be (as a kid) when you grew up?
