MOD NOTE: This thread was started in 2011 by someone who is no longer a member of this bulletin board. If some one just wanted to go to college and get an easy degree just to say they got a B.S. or B.A. Degree, what should they major in? What is a relatively easy College Major?

Communications, Sociology, Political Science. English, Fine Arts, History.

Which College Major would be best for the average person who wants to do the least work?

PE?
I hate to write this but I would have a tough time in history, poly sci, psychology, etc. I would still have a lot of time consuming reading, a lot of memorization, a lot of tests, a lot of term papers, a lot of research. The thing is, most of the majors are only 40 units and the rest (128-40) are GE and electives. Engineering classes are also hard but it is 99 units and the rest (128-99) are GE and electives.

There is a small college near Lubbock, Texas that used to offer a degree in country music. As much as I enjoy most country music, and even play a little, I think that a degree in music would have been much more difficult for me to master than the biological degrees I chose.

In short, some education is better founded if there is an innate skill (talent) to base it on. I vote for a degree in music of any sort as being the most difficult, at least for me.

It depends on a person's interests. I was always interested in crime, never did any, but found it fascinating to study. It was not even homework for me to write a paper about criminal behavior or look up crime stats. It would have been hell for me to listen to country music, and know the muscians...ugh.

So, if you are interested in History, major in that..but, always think of the end result, a job,

Business would be a tough one for me. Just the thought of micro/macro economics and stats, ugh. I complete my nursing degree in 4 days, and although it was tough, it interested me.

Maybe if taken from some matchbook university. From a quality institution, this is actually much more difficult than most majors like Sociology, Psychology, History, Theatre, Speech, Communications, Criminal Justice, English, Etc.

Easiest majors at standard institutions are Recreation and General Studies. You can keep over half the football team eligible using these two.
