Choosing a major in college defines your entire academic experience. Whether you're an english major, biology major, or political science major, whatever you choose puts you on a certain path. I went to the College of the Holy Cross, which is a liberal arts school in Worcester, MA. At Holy Cross you can major in just about any of the classic college majors, but all of the majors tend to be fairly broad. For example, you can major in political science but not something as specific as criminal justice.
