Rebecca’s Answer

There's no such thing as an "easy" major as every person has different interests and skills. A communications major may be very easy for one person and very difficult for another who might think math is very easy. In the long run, your GPA will not determine your career outcome or success. The critical thing is to pick a major that aligns with your interests, abilities, and can lead to a career that you will be passionate about.

Good luck finding what excites you!

Rebecca recommends the following next steps:

Talk to people in a variety of majors to learn more about their focus areas and the classes they take.
If you can, take a wide array of intro classes that will help you discover what you want to pursue further.
Take an online career assessment that could help guide you.

Brayden’s Answer


First off I would say that there is no such thing as a "easy" degree. Every degree challenges people in different ways so just because a degree path might feel easier for you someone else might be struggling. When choosing a degree however I never thought about "oh what one will make me the most money" or "which one can I get done the quickest". I always asked myself what is it that I can see myself doing for the next 25-30 years and does it make me happy. Does it challenge me to want to come to work everyday and solve problems? Or will I dread coming to work and switch my job in 5 years. There are so many ways to make money these days and many of those opportunities dont involve your degree so just because you graduate with said X degree doesnt mean that is the industry you will end up in. Just enjoy the ride and let things fall where they fall.

Hopefully this helps!

Hi! This is a very subjective topic because it depends on many different factors. I think that when you are deciding on what you want to major in, you should focus on your strengths and what genuinely interests you, rather than what may seem the easiest. This is because what is easy for one person may not be easy for you, and vice versa. Additionally, there may be a major that is easier for you, but does not interest you, and this would not be the right choice. Sometimes it is better to challenge yourself because it can help you get more out of your experience. And if you choose a major that excites you, that is your best bet at enjoying your classes, even if they may be a little more difficult. I hope this helps!
