CS Majors have been increasing because of the spread and increase of technology so it is pretty popular. Not like Historical & Political studies where the majority of people think History is boring. <_<
I am a junior at Baylor University. Baylor University is the largest Baptist university in the nation and it is located in Waco, Texas. Even though I am not a big football fan, it is important to mention that Baylor has a football team in the Big 12. You may have heard us due to our losing streak in this area. ;) However, I do hear we are doing better this year.
I am currently majoring in Information Systems, a technical strand of business. With any luck, I will become either a systems analyst, a technical consultant or a software engineer. I haven't quite decided on my career path within this major yet. Regardless of what I choose, I will likely work with CS majors.
(5th year senior, though I haven't failed any classes x_x )
(have the minor already)
lemme guess, taking min number of classes every time?
Ya well sort of...I've done more than 12 cr most of the time yet I spaced out some of my math and physics classes, since it was just overwhelmingly too much work...so I got my math minor and now I'm focusing on my 400 lvl (senior) physics courses ^^
Basically, we'll all gonna be computer programmers, program designers (those who do all the paper work and get paid better ;P), system admins, hardware mechanics (though that's not really what we learn right now, based on speciality later on) etc.
"Computer related stuff" like would say Battle Programmer Shirase from my avatar ;).
...I feel so lame. :[ I just go to community college for now with an undecided major. I am getting an Associate of Arts and then transferring to a university... hell if I know which one. They're ALL expensive.
Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, MA (USA). It's a small private college around Boston... I'm from Oregon, personally, but ended up over here after getting into a serious relationship with a girl who attends it.
History is my major... I was originally looking at English, but history became my fascination. If all the credits go well, I should graduate this spring.
After I graduate... not sure what I'm doing. I have no career I'm seriously aiming for. Teaching history would be fun, but I need graduate school for that, and that's not exactly economically realistic at this point.

I'm a German major that is 2 exams and 1 final semester away from graduating from the University of Otago in New Zealand. I've changed my major about 5 times, so I've worked through a fairly eclectic mix of papers, like Mathematics, Computer Science, Portuguese, Linguistics, Film and Media, Communication Studies, and, of course, Japanese, as well as my German Language and Culture papers.
CSN (College of Southern Nevada)
Majors are changing around, but it has been eliminated down to Architecture (Residential, Interior, etc.) & Gaming Design
May end up getting ceritificates in both catergories since i'd only take 3 1/2 years and going intern on both.

3 letters: WOW
that's pretty much a lot of majors you've done and changed...
Jefferson State Community College (Birmingham, AL)- Computer Science- Networking
soon to transfer to University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB)- Computer Science major (Networking Specialization) and a minor (hopefully in Software Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or International Business...they're all listed in order of preference)
*yawns and stretches* George Mason University, Freshman currently getting my degree in Medical Technology....though it's boring as hell down here. -_-; I was thinking of maybe transferring to UVA or JMU as a biology major in about 2 years or so.
