What's Your Major?

Or planned major, if you're not in university yet.

Mine is very random--Linguistics. It's the study of human language. Not every linguist knows more than one language, but it really helps. Personally I know English and Spanish, plus I want to learn more.

Re: What's Your Major?

I'm double majoring in English and History, with a completed minor in Philosophy. I have no idea what I'm going to do with my degree.

Well I change my mind all the time, lol. Next semester I'm beginning Japanese for sure. After college I'm going into the Peace Corps, will is sure to lead me to some interesting languages. After that, I want to teach English as a Second Language 'round the world. I'll probably start in Spanish-speaking countries and/or Japan, and then when I get bored move on to new countries, learning their languages along the way. ^_^

Re: What's Your Major?

I'm majoring in archaeology, mainly looking at Andean and some other Latin American areas as well. I'm currently in the process of thinking about graduate studies either in archaeology or in geography.

What is applied language studies exactly? How would that differ from, say, a French major? Just curious.

Re: What's Your Major?

I'm hoping to get a major in film, and if that doesn't work then I'll go with genetics or environmental biology and public policy.

Re: What's Your Major?

My major is history, my minor education. I plan to go to grad school for my Masters in Art History and my PhD in European history.
