What's Your Major?

Postby cv4 » Thu Jan 21, 2010 12:16 am UTC

I am assuming something like this has been done in the past, but it is the kind of thing that can always be resurrected.
So, simple question, what is your major/what are you getting your degree in?

As I started the topic, I am doing:

Bachelor of Engineering Science - Mechanical & Materials Engineering
Bachelor of Science - Earth and Planetary Sciences

Now..............GO!

I've applied to colleges for the fall term for a B.S. in Physics with a Minor in Astronomy (or "concentration" or "track," depending on the school in question.) As of now I'm hoping to go to grad school and get my M.S. and perhaps even a Ph.D. in Astrophysics, but that's very far down the road, and there's no telling how my interests and aspirations might change over the next few years.

I'll be starting college this fall as an economics major. We'll see if that holds up, though.

Not 100% sure yet. As of right now it is pure and applied mathematics double major with a minor in physics. I may do a triple joint major between pure and applied mathematics and combinatorics again with a physics minor.

Working towards a BS in Biochemistry/Cell/Molecular Biology. I feel very vanilla having just one major and no minors, but don't really have time for much else. Maybe I'll try to double-major in chemistry, since many classes overlap with what my curriculum is now, and it's somewhat pertinent to my interests...

B.S. in Applied Mathematics, concentration in computer science, which in addition to the core requirements for my applied maths degree, will give me a minor in CS.
Completely unrelated, and for my own enjoyment only, minoring in philosophy hopefully.
Computer Science: A place to discuss the spirituality of Pornography Storage Apparatuses and programs, from algorithms to computability.

Formal proofs preferred.

Currently an Information and Computer Science major at UCI, going for my BS.

Vaguely considering adding on Studio Art as a second major or a minor, even though I"m really bad at it. (The idea would be to improve.)

I'll have to check with my counselors to see if it's possible. . .
There's a method to my madness. Somewhere. Don't worry, I'll find it!

It will be a double major or my first major will be Physics and I'll be doing a second major in Applied Mathematics at the same time also a minor in Astrophysics or a major in Astrophysics and a minor in physics I haven't decided yet....

I recently added a second major. I'm now majoring in Physics and Applied Mathematics, with a minor in Computer Science. I would have gone for a second minor in Chemistry, but that would require another semester of work.
