I’m filling out my CSU application for Spring 2021. In the section where you list the colleges you’ve attended, you also need to say what degrees you earned, including your majors and minors. Well, at the community college that I attended, I don’t recall declaring any type of major/minor. I simply had a plan to get a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science.
During my time at Community College, I earned an Associate’s of Science for Transfer in Mathematics because lots of math was completed on my path to transferring, so I completed the degree coincidentally. I also completed a similar amount of Computer Science classes to preemptively meet University requirements, but received no degree.
If you were to ask me, my major is Computer Science. The problem is that I don’t know what the CSU application means when it asks for my major. I’m worried that it is improper to say that I’ve obtained an AS-T in Mathematics only to list my Major as Computer Science. I currently have my major for the degree listed as Mathematics, but I want to change it to Computer Science as that is the program that I’m applying to transfer into.
Should I list my major as Mathematics because that’s the degree I received, or should I list my major as Computer Science because that is my broader educational goal? Am I misunderstanding the concept of majors/minors completely?
