What are the majors, minors, and/or fields of interest(s) you guys are interested in? Why?

Whether you're an upcoming undergraduate, pursuing a doctoral degree, or a proactive middle-schooler, I'm really interested in getting insight into your passions!

Personally, I plan on studying Philosophy, Psychology, Neuroscience, and the like because I believe that in order to decipher our ever-evolving, extrinsic unknowns—the nature of reality, the nature of the universe, etc.—we must first decipher ourselves. Plus, I love their memes :P

I look forward to reading your responses! :)

I really love languages and learning about different cultures so I want to double major in Anthropology and Linguistics! I have a habit of trying to learn too many languages at once haha.

I love learning languages too! I've been trying to learn Spanish and Mandarin on Duolingo hehe. Oooooh, do you plan on traveling a bunch? I love visiting other countries! If you do, where would you like to go most?

I’m also learning Spanish through Duolingo! I’ve always wanted a study buddy for languages but I have no idea how to find someone to study with or how that would work :’( Yes, I plan on traveling as much as I can!! I’d love to visit Korea, China, Spain, Brazil, London and honestly anywhere hehe! Do you plan on traveling a lot?

Yes! I really hope I get the chance to explore! I wanna visit as many national parks as I can, and possibly participate in some Buddhist or otherwise spiritual retreats.

A little late to the conversation, but I'm interested in either linguistics or speech/language pathology. Basically I'm interested in how communication works and different languages. I'm still in high school so I'm not sure what path I'll go down, but I do know that I have a language learning addiction!

Ahhh! This is such a coincidence that I happened to check CollegeVine today :000 I spent nearly the whole day practicing Spanish and Mandarin on Duolingo! I also find languages—specifically their syntaxes—super interesting; it’s so neat to compare and contrast different languages to get a bit of insight into the native peoples’ culture and values. It’s the little nuances and small pieces of the puzzle which usually speak volumes :) Anywho, good luck with your studies! :D (Just a side note for anyone interested in learning Mandarin if you’re originally an English-speaker—or vice versa—the two languages structures/rules/etc are pretty different. So, expect to commit a decent chunk of your time into your studies. Okay byeeeee :D)

I will be pursuing a degree in Dental Hygiene which I hope will help me to start my career then after working as a Dental Hygienist I will go back to school to get a law degree or forensic science degree.

Oooh! I heard dentistry is a great field for moola :) I’m also interested in law! I used to have a sweatshirt that imitated the font of and said “Harvard Law”. Below it, in small font, was “Just Kidding :)”. I loved that sweatshirt. xD

I am really interested (as of now) in pretty much the same things as you- Neuroscience and Psychology (not so much on the Philosophy aspect). I also love Biology. I just fell in love with the brain and I am now in the process of going more into it with a school project. Now that I come to think of it, I was always fascinated by the workings of the brain and behavior....or maybe it could be my mom's influence (she is a Psychiatric RN)!

Yes! It’s so nice to meet a kindred spirit! Also, it’s great that your mom is a well-trained professional in the field :)

I like the same things as you, coincidentally for the same reasons as you! Those fields have always been super fascinating to me. I also love business, writing, fashion, information science, and more. I'm interested in everything!

Incredible! It’s so neat that you’re both interested practical fields, as well as more abstract ones. I, on the other hand, didn’t retain much from my Econ/Personal Finance class and am pretty clueless when it comes to computers, coding, all the tech-y languages, and the like lol. Gosh, being an “adult” will sure be a struggle xD

I am really interested in majoring in Industrial Engineering and maybe minoring in CS if that's possible? I'm kind of interested in business so Industrial Engineering is a way for me to do that!

Awesome! I didn't even realize that existed! But I did a bit of Googling and it sounds like a real treat :) It centers around the relationship between humans and technology and their productivity, right? If I'm understanding it right, then I think I need to learn a thing or two from you lol ;D Panda's are my spirit animal: They're Asian, they eat and sleep all day, their diet consists of 99% greens, and a group of them are called an "embarrassment" lol. Anywho, I love meeting fellow MCU fans; I hope you enjoy Eternals!! :D

I love robotics and I want to get my degree in mechanical engineering.

I wanted to get involved in my school's Robotics Club so bad!! Unfortunately, it just didn't mesh well with my schedule :( But it's so cool how you're going to be contributing to the evolution of 'intelligence'! I've recently been introduced to the field, "Cyberpsychology". It's pretty self-explanatory, but I just find it so interesting how emergent technologies will completely transform philosophical thought and the like. Anywho, that was just a fleshed-out version of saying: "Hey, if you're interested, come check this out!" Little do I know, I may have just rambled on to the next Iron Man! ;D (Just a random brain-barf comment: I'm so excited for Eternals!! Ahhhh :P) Sorry about this sporadic response heheh; all in all, I just wanted to wish you good luck on your endeavors :) Peace!

That's so cool!!! And I am so excited for Eternals as well even though the critics didn't exactly love it.

I've always loved medicine growing up because I find that in the medical field there's always something new to learn and you never really stop learning. I plan on majoring in either nursing or biology. I'd like to in the future become an OB-GYN or an OB-GYN nurse.

The medical field is such and honorable and rewarding career cluster! It's wonderful to meet someone with such a thirst for knowledge :) I actually took a Sports Medicine class during my Junior year, and it was so cool! I might even delve into medicine one day if my plan to attain a Phd in Philosophy and live as a hobo or a full-time McDonald's employee doesn't pan out ;) Best of luck!

I'm passionate about History and Theatre, so I plan to get a History major with a Theatre minor. I don't want to double-major because that would be too much work for me.

I’m really interested in the humanities, and I want to be a professor and write research papers and publish books and the like someday! The only problem is that I have too many passions and I can’t decide what I want to teach/major in. I’m stuck between history, psychology, literature, and linguistics, but some evil part of me wants to say “screw this” and major in astronomy :)
