What does it mean by major?

Majors mean different things to different students, so start by figuring out what your major means to you. For some, the college major is training for a career. For others, choosing a major is a path to personal fulfillment that has no connection to future career plans.

What is the difference between a major and a degree?

For example, the most common bachelor's degrees are a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or a Bachelor of Science (B.S.), but some colleges also offer Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degrees. The type of degree you pursue will often be dictated by your major, but there can be some overlap.
