Rank majors in difficulties (excluding HSS)

<p>I'm just curious on how hard each major is.
I know everyone is different, but I'm just curious what do people at Caltech think is the most/least difficult major.</p>

<p>I think it all depends on what your personal strengths are. I had a friend in undergrad (not at Caltech) that switched out of Materials Engineering since he was having a hard time with all of his classes and went on to be a stellar math student. Not really the typical switch you see when someone's struggling to pull Bs/Cs in a traditionally difficult major.</p>

<p>It really depends on what you're good at. I think ChemE has the most required classes, followed by EE I think. Math is something you either love or don't (at least in my experience), and I imagine it's a very difficult major if you don't love it. Geology has the fewest required classes I think.</p>
