Regarding Board Question #45265 I too must respond as an MFHD graduate who is married to an (almost) Engineering graduate.
Who is smarter? My husband says I am, but in all reality I think we're just both smart at different things. I got a 35 on the ACT and am confident I could have majored in anything I wanted to, but I chose MFHD. I learned a lot of scholarly information. MFHD is a combination of psychology, sociology, physiology, etc. It is a legitimate science based major.
I knew some "dumb people" in my MFHD classes. My husband knew some "dumb people" in his Engineering classes.
When it comes to making a living off our majors, it's funny because when I quit my job in 3 weeks and my husband starts his job, our income won't change. Even 30 years down the road, if we both pursued careers we would probably end up with similar salaries.
Don't bash a major that you don't understand, and don't idealize a major that is not all you make it out to be.
- the MFHD major.
