A major is a specific subject area that students specialize in.
If you specialize in something like nursing, accounting or engineering, you're learning a specific trade. Many majors, however, prepare you to enter a range of careers once you graduate. For many students, picking a college major is not the same as choosing a job. For example, a degree in English literature might lead you to a job in publishing, teaching, advertising, public relations or law, among other fields.
