If you have a college degree and had do-overs, what would you have majored in?

I did want to major in music but then I realized I would either be performing in a group at night or teaching during the day (or both) and didn't want to do that.

How about you?

  • my degree is in Family Studies and i would definitely do a do-over in Education or History. the only jobs i could get in my field are social work and im just not strong enough to do that job. im actually working on some do-overs starting this semester so i can get my major in another field.

  • I think almost everyone reaches that moment about your junior year too as to if you want to change your major. I know I did and so did my friends. It happened to my husband too.

    I did accounting and then went back after I got married and had my kids and went for child development. I loved it! Wish I would have the first time. But I guess things happen for a reason.

  • I have my degree in education, and would keep it the same but if I had to choose another major, it would be psychology.

  • I would have gone into nursing. My degrees are in Sports Medicine and Exercise Physiology!

  • I started out for nursing, then changed to general, then back to nursing, I am now majoring in human services! It is such a big decision!

  • Definitely something more practical like psychology or social work. I did I want to work in the social work field and no one takes me seriously. It sucks.

  • Mine is Public Management and I think that has been the best road. I minored in criminal justice. I had originally wanted my major to be c.j. but thank goodness my Mom talked me out of it.

  • I would have just stayed and majored in SOMETHING! I know it's never too late to go back, but I can't right now. I hope to in the future and hope to stick with it the 2nd time around!

  • I have a degree in accounting and worked in that field for a while. IVe moved and wish I had gone into Nursing now.

  • I would have still wanted the same degrees. I enjoyed my jobs and my university education really helped me.
