If You Had A Different Major...

So for this post I thought I'd ask IU students and alumni what their major is/was and what other major they would have chosen for themselves, assuming it would bear no negative consequences. No regrets yadda yadda yadda but I do think it's interesting what people would really have liked to do if success was a sure thing. I'll start with myself.

  • Name: Megan
  • Major: English
  • Dream Major: Ballet

(If you know me, you are probably laughing hysterically, as I am a truly heinous dancer).

Moving on...

  • Name: Jourdan
  • Major: Fashion Merchandising
  • Dream Major: Physical Therapy
  • Name: Randi
  • Major: Dietetics
  • Dream Major: Dance
  • Name: Austin
  • Major: Accounting
  • Dream Major: Scuba Diving
  • Name: Blaire
  • Major: Telecommunications
  • Dream Major: Premedicine for Dental School
  • Name: Jay
  • Major: Management Administration
  • Dream Major: Dietetics
  • Name: Tyler
  • Major: SPEA Management
  • Dream Major: Sports Marketing
  • Name: AJ
  • Major: Crimincal Justice
  • Dream Major: Exercise Science
  • Name: Kira
  • Major: Psychology
  • Dream Major: Fashion Design and Merchandising

These are a few examples from some of my peers. Though this may not be the most interesting post as has been suggested to me by a couple of the peers I spoke to, I do think that the tendency of the dream major is. It seems that there is a definent inclination towards a major that involves the sensory aspects of the physical body to a great extent and in all honesty, there is an inclination towards majors that would probably way more fun. Don't be depressed by the fact that fun does not equal money. Just remember that money is a necessary evil in order to have fun so stick with your textbooks and do work.

What are your current and dream majors?
