Class of 2016 Majors!

<p>Hey guys! What is everyone's potential major? I plan to double major in Athletic Training and Applied Physiology and Kinesiology, pre-physical therapy!</p>

<p>Hospitality Management with a minor in Finance! (:</p>

<p>Hate to burst your bubble but you can't minor in Finance at UF</p>

<p>Finance!!! with a minor in German</p>

<p>Computer Science</p>

<p>Uhh, pre-med? Although, UF doesn't actually have a pre-med major, so I guess Biology. :)</p>

<p>Accounting!</p>

<p>Science, Math, Technology or Engineering seem to be the more profitable ways to go. You should really think about what jobs you can get with your major after graduating, not what you would like to learn about.</p>

<p>Double major, poly Sci and business</p>

<p>Agreed. As much as I'd love to major in Anthropolgy or History, I know the potential job fields for those majors are limited. I'd rather get a job I hate that pays a lot, and then retire early. :)</p>

<p>(Although I don't actually hate Medicine.)</p>

<p>Nursing!!!!!!!!!!!!</p>

<p>Tust me, you do not want a job you hate that pays a lot. I know students going into lots of fields - all of them legitimately like their careers regardless of pay. I agree with this to a point, but I am realizing more the longer I am here that there are actually a lot of viable majors. Now, I am not saying history etc. will get you a job necessarily, but I do know some majors do work. Such as polisci/econ double with a business minor or the such could get you a good government type job. Obviously pay for engineering or business tends to be higher, but I would not ignore what you like. Consider a minor or certificate. </p>

<p>When I first came here, I was dead set on banking. Then accounting. Then retail. Then back to accounting. Then I took an accounting class and realized I dislike it. Obviously harder classes are disliked more often because no one likes studying.</p>

<p>The only real time your degree matters is recruitment out of college. Obviously engineering companies will hire engineers majors, or an accounting firm will hire an accounting or business major. This holds for a while. But if you play your cards right, you could get plenty of jobs you could never imagine (FBI Agent, Campaign Adviser, Online Writer, even a business operations job).</p>

<p>Just my two cents. Don't waste 4+ years in an unpleasant atmosphere, and don't discount yourselves. Be ready to be open-minded and travel off the beaten path as far as jobs go. </p>

<p>Sorry if this is too off-topic for this thread.</p>

<p>I'm not saying always choose the job that will pay the most, even if you hate it. What I was trying to say is if you're an undecided major, at least choose something that you can get a career in. They say money can't buy happiness, and this is true, but it certainly helps.</p>
