My dad has a lot of philosophies about life, and I think this one is worth sharing. You should major in something you are passionate about and the rest will work itself out. If you love what you're doing, you will excel at it and work harder at it, which will make you more successful in the long run. You don't want to be stuck doing something you hate for the rest of your life, or you will just spend all the extra money you make on things in an attempt to make yourself happy.
My dad is a smart man.
I definitely think it's worth considering your return on investment when deciding what to major in, but it should not be the only reason you pick a career path.
