Before you can even begin writing this essay, it’s important that you do your research on why you chose your major and why you want to study it at the college you’re applying to. Popular majors are really difficult to talk about uniquely so you’ll have to give extra effort to do so. You can talk about interesting classes that the college offers on your major. You can talk about certain professors in your major that you would like to study under. There may also be academic exchange programs and research projects within the department that you find exciting. You can also talk about how you see this major shaping your career. In the end, the most important thing is that you tie it all in to who you are and what you see yourself doing with this major in the future.
