A college major is a group of courses required by a college in order to receive a degree. It is an area you specialize in, such as accounting, engineering, biology, or fashion design. There are certain "core courses" in the specialization that everyone is required to take, along with several "elective courses".
In the United States and Canada, an academic major (informally major) is the academic discipline to which an undergraduate student formally commits. A student who successfully completes the courses prescribed in an academic major qualifies for an undergraduate degree.
Choosing a major is one of the most important decision you will make when you apply to the Fashion Institute of Technology.
