Should I take classes that are irrelevant to my major?

I am asking this question because I recently looked at some classes I would have to take in order to major in my intended major and that are different for each school. So I am wondering if I should go to a school that offers my major but I have to take unrelated classes in return. #major

One of the best things about American colleges, in my opinion, is that they allow you to explore various interests rather than just a single thing. Many people find that courses they take outside of their majors are some of the best classes they take and are often not as unrelated as they seem. Taking these courses also allows you to reexamine your life goals and see if there are maybe other things out there that you could see yourself doing. Many people go into college majoring in one subject and come out majoring in something else because they've learned more about their future prospects and/or themselves. Others continue along the same path while minoring in a secondary interest. In other words, if your situation allows it, don't be afraid to use college as a time to explore.

Hi Sofia!


Different schools have different requirements, as they might approach the same major in a different way. Talk to the admissions counselors at each school that you are considering, and ask them to explain the courses that are required and why. .


Best of luck! Please keep me posted. I would like to follow your progress!
