Should I switch from Mech E to Architectural Engineering?

I am currently a sophomore in Mechanical Engineering, but I find myself more interested in Architectural Engineering. Some people have told me that Architectural Engineering is more narrow as a field and that it's not worth switching into, but I'm not sure what to do. Should I change my major?...
