Hi Tionna ! To be a cardiologist you must go to medical school after completing 4 years of undergraduate education. You can be ANY major and go to medical school, the prerequisites and your grades matter. Yes there may be a question about why you chose your specific major in a potential interview for medical school, so therefore when picking a major, choose what interests you most, not what will sound or look good. In addition be sure to maintain a good GPA and a good MCAT score- there is no set score but usually medical school acceptance is competitive and you want to maintain a 3.7/3.8+. I was a Psychology major and I loved it, it introduced me to so many diverse concepts and made me more socially prepared for medicine. For now, do well, study hard, and get involved in some meaningful activities to display your commitment to medicine!

I hope this helps!
Please let me know if you have any additional questions, I wish you the best!

As long as you complete you premed courses it doesn't matter. If I had to do this again, I would chose a business major or something along those lines.
