The most common question you get asked in college is, “What’s your major?” It’s safe to say that your major becomes part of your identity, whether you like it or not. Don’t believe me? There are so many people whose names I just can’t remember so I simply refer to them as “that one guy majoring in (insert major) – you know, the one that (insert unique characteristic).” Thanks to the importance of majors, it’s no easy feat to choose and here’s why.

Fact is, for the sake of time and money you simply can’t major in all of your interests… unless you become James Franco and have about a million different degrees.
