  1. I chose to be a doctor in the cancer patient section because my family all suffers from numerous types so i have been around it my whole life and always wanted to help those in need. So this choice was me, making the world a better place.

  2. I chose to study Library Science to fulfill a life long dream. The library was my favorite place on the planet when I was young and I was always the librarians assistant. I graduated in 1987 and didn’t have the money to pursue this education so I studied Accounting at a vocational school and enjoyed a 20 year career in that field; however, I always wondered “what if?”. I’m finally back and ready to get the education I always wanted. Choosing a major can be difficult but this is your opportunity to become anything and live your dream so choose wisely!

  3. Because from since young I like watching crime scenes on tv.

  4. I chose my major because it’s the only thing I can ever see myself doing in life. :)

  5. oh yeah, my major is music performance. i’ll be attending berklee college of music in the fall

  6. music is present wherever i am and brings me such joy. i cant think of any better way to spend my life than bringing that joy to others

  7. You can always find a job as a nurse.

  8. I chose my major because I enjoyed creating things and hoped that one day it will lead me into one of my favorite hobbies; video games. My major is Graphic Design.

  9. I chose my major because I couldn’t decide if I wanted to teach history or religious studies. So I combined the two into a Liberal Studies degree which will allow me to teach both at a community college once I obtain/earn my Master’s degree in Education.

  10. My major is anthropology and I chose it because it is the closest I can get to understanding people and how culture influences their daily lives. I found my passion before I chose a major which made it much easier to fit what I wanted into the school curriculum.

  11. I chose my major, because I have dreamed about making video games my entire life. Hopefully, once I graduate I will be able to take my thoughts and designs and establish them into real games.

  12. Correction: “Whether you are heading…” :)
