College Major

There seems to always be an ongoing discussion in writing forums, classrooms and writing groups about the "best" major to have in college to be a writer. I've heard people swear that only creative writing majors ever succeed as writers and I've heard others say that doing the opposite major (math or science) kept them from getting burned out with writing. I started out as a creative writing major and soon switched to literature. My reasoning? If I wanted to write a great novel, I desperately needed to read and study great novels.

So, what was/is your college major? Do you think it had/has any impact on your writing?
