Can we, filthy and wretched non-Americans, play?
Undergrad: Muhlenberg (Pennsylvania)
Graduate: Wake Forest
Both in Business. If I wasn't paying for it myself, I would have picked something I liked more Japanese language or Religion. Or even History and made a move into academics. But, you know, I have a ROI to think about.
Of course you can
University of Tuzla
Faculty of Philosophy and Languages
Department of English Language and Literature
Class of 2012
We don't have the equivalent of your major/minor nonsense, instead, every course (ranging from literature (both English and American), language studies, contrastive and cognitive linguistics, pragmatics and pedagogy to introductory philosophy and psychology, semantics, translation and ESL methodology (I'm pretty sure I've missed some)) carries a predetermined number of ECTS credits where one is required to complete everything in order to graduate.
Would I change anything if given the chance? Nope. The reason I chose this path is twofold: 1) English language (alongside most of the things I listed above) is, perhaps, the only thing that interests me and 2) I seek to perpetuate the cycle of abusive behaviour displayed by teachers, the type of behaviour that I had to suffer for years...
Landing a job in our crowded educaton system might a bit problematic, which is why the seas of freelance interpreting beckon me.
As an aside, how much did your college education cost in total (if you don't mind me asking)? Just trying to compare the tuitions.

Curtin Institute of Technology
Construction Management and Economics.
Because of the high demand of construction work, and the high pay, and the huge area where you can get promoted and make even more money, huge opportunities, Aus is still booming, especially Western Australia. Can work overseas, did I mention money?
Only thing I regret doing? Getting lazy first year and failing units =P
Proud Australian Bobcats Fan!!!
I say it's similar in concept because "Majors" have a lot of the same things you listed. For example, you have general requirements like foreign language, philosophy, mathematics, etc. Then you have a set of requirements that relate to your specific field of study so that you're prepared for your future career.
Actually, I found a pdf of my Degree Sheet. It might help make better sense of what we have to take. http://www.cas.sc.edu/crju/pdfs/badegree.pdf
My tuition is about $5,000 a semester before scholarships. But I don't pay for on campus housing and don't have a meal plan so mine isn't as high as some.As an aside, how much did your college education cost in total (if you don't mind me asking)? Just trying to compare the tuitions.
As for myself:
University of South Carolina, class of 2013
BA Criminal Justice (with a minor in Political Science)
I wouldn't change anything as it's exactly what I need for my future plans

I'm an in-state student...... luckily.
That's also the main reason why I (sadly) chose USC over North Carolina, out-of-state for UNC was something like 20K a semester and none of my big scholarships would carry over into NC.
2007-2009 NCSU, 2009-2012 UNCC graduating in may.
