Your major at FSU, according to your Spotify playlist

If Jordan Belfort is on it, you’re definitely an Econ major

There are two things that can potentially tell you all you need to know about a person — their field of study and their music taste. Just a glance at someone’s Spotify can give you insight into their goals, habits, and even their more questionable qualities. Here are some telling song titles to look out for.


This guy’s a Business major, no question. During the day, you can find him in an H&M suit ensemble, arguing with your Econ professor about the latest cryptocurrency. When night falls, the Sperry’s come out and you can catch him at your neighborhood house party shotgunning a can of cheap beer. Alongside his preworkout, he uses this playlist to get pumped for a few hours of building his beauty muscles at the Leach.

Psychology (Clinical/Counseling)

Don’t be surprised if you see this girl sharing a hammock on Landis with her emotionally unstable friend. As she dispenses a handful of tissues to her sniffling pal, you may hear her ask something along the lines of, “How did that make you feel?” If you need an amateur diagnosis, you can count on her — After all, she got a 4 on her AP Psych exam. She listens to these somber jams to get pumped for a day of clinical analysis and consoling.

Discretion & Depressing People – Into It. Over It


You’ll most likely spot this terrified freshman in the campus Chick-fil-A, reading College Board’s Book of Majors and stress eating a bag of fries. She just realized she forgot to take an online quiz last night and that she definitely didn’t put on deodorant before she left her dorm. Her planner is overflowing with sticky notes, and she’s really regretting not taking her AP classes more seriously in high school. This is the playlist she listens to when she’s rushing from Bellamy to Williams every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

You can find this deep thinker at the Starbucks by Landis asking the barista a series of meaningless questions. With a man bun the size of your breakfast bagel and a side satchel filled with texts from his main dude Plato, this guy really has the meaning of life lurking somewhere in his overalls. He uses these tunes to impress the females. A level-headed lady friend may be his only hope for a financially stable future.

Computer Science

Catch this guy in the computer lab, scratching his neck beard and scrolling through Reddit. He gets really giddy if you can speak code, but expect him to assert his allegedly superior knowledge all over that shit. His humor is nihilistic and absurdist á la Rick and Morty. He digs the Mr. Robot series because of how surprisingly accurate it is to Code Nerds everywhere. This soundtrack gets him in the coding mood.
