The College Major You Are, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

You know how some people you meet in college just suit their major so perfectly?

If not yet, this is probably something you'll notice soon or when you start college. From the art major that has an ultra-edgy style to the education major who just feels like they give off schoolteacher vibes and any other major in between, many students seem like the perfect reflection of the subject they chose to study. Interested in learning what major you might "be" based on your personality? Break it down with astrology. With that said, here's what college major you are (though not necessarily what you should study if it's not what you want to do) based on your zodiac sign:

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Environmental Sciences

Fiery, passionate Aries doesn't approach anything halfway, which is why they're such great activists and environmentalists that want to use their intensity for good. That's why the major we associate with the first sign in the zodiac is environmental studies, the study of (you guessed it) the environment. Not only is this topic incredibly important, but it's also something that our Aries friends can use to actually make the world a better place.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Hospitality

While Taurians get a bad rap for being slight homebodies, it's more that they simply love making a space feel likehome. They love hosting, having guests over for any and all occasions and anything rather on the opulent side. Because of this, they match up well with the major of hospitality or hospitality management, which could involve anything from event planning to hotel management and so much more.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Psychology

Known for being a bi versatile (to put it nicely), Geminis are all about changing face and hacking a social setting to go their way by diving deep into the psyche of those around them. Because of this, we could think of no better major to represent them than psychology.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Marine Biology

Yes, we did give the most obviously water-based water sign a marine-related topic, but it makes sense. Cancers are known for their sensitivity, their empathy and their overall depth—much like, well, the ocean. Plus, that same empathy and sensitivity make them more likely to care about conservation, a topic that is integral within the study of marine biology.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Social Sciences /Theater

Two things about Leos: they're always the star of the show, and they know how to talk. They're naturally charismatic and good with people, which reflects in their acting skills (hey, there's a reason why so many of your favorite celebs just so happen to be Leos) and/or their ability to craft a quality conversation with just about anyone. As such, it's really no wonder why they are perfectly represented as either drama or theater majors, which they're likely to do a lot more front-of-stage work in, or a social sciences major, which focuses on the dynamics of social interactions and setups within society.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Nursing/Elementary Education

Virgos are a bit like the "mom friend" of the zodiac, the ones that are always ready to jump into care mode for someone else. They're natural nurturers, which is what makes them the perfect embodiment of nursing and elementary education—two majors that require a whole lot of patience and even more organization.


Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Sociology

Represented by the scales, Libra is a sign that's all about balance. Sociology, the major we give to this air sign, is the study of how individuals move and interact within society. Even more than that, it deals with issues of inequality and imbalance—something that Libra is all about fixing.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Biomed

While they get called things like "dark" and "moody" on the regular, Scorpios are not the bad guys (not all the time, anyway). They just have a lot of depth and mystery to them that requires a lot of time and study to comprehend, much like biomedical sciences. Beyond just that, they do actually care about people deeply, making them excellent doctors, biologists and other related professions.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): International Studies

Oh, sweet Sagittarius—she sign that's always ready to embark on their next adventure, to explore all that the world has to offer. Could there be a better major to represent this fire sign than international studies? They care deeply about the way things in the world work, much like how this subject focuses on the inner and outer workings of cultures and countries across the globe.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Business

If you know a Capricorn or simply know anything about them, this one should seem pretty obvious. These business-minded, hardworking (and hardheaded) earth signs are the perfect embodiment of business. We would say more, but Capricorn would probably beat us to it anyway.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Humanities/Art History

Aloof, mysterious and artsy are just three of the many words that we could use to describe Aquarians, which is why we placed them straight in the bucket of humanities and art history. These subjects are not as simple as they may seem, as it takes a lot of deep dissecting of the subject matter or medium in question to understand the meaning behind it all—just as it takes a lot of work to understand what on earth is going on in the head of an Aquarius.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): English Lit

Dreamy, sensitive and poetic Pisces could only be represented by a major like English. Words have power, and that's something that our friend Pisces understands all too well. Plus, have you ever met a Pisces that didn't love to read? Probably not.
