There are a lot of reasons to go to school, including the joy of learning, personal development, and future employment. Unfortunately, I frequently meet people who picked courses of study that are fun without considering what happens after they graduate.
Time Magazine just released an article showing which jobs lead people to move back in with their parents. Take a look through this information, and consider the impact your major will have on your quality of life after school.
A field like history (which has the highest percentage of grads living at home at age 29) may be your passion, and you may want to dedicate your life to the study of some past event or ancient culture. If that's the case, it may be worth living in your dad's basement for several years after graduation.
If, however, living with your parents (or in an apartment with six roommates) is not a pleasant option for you, consider a minor in the area you're passionate about and choose a major that's more likely to give you the lifestyle you really want after you graduate.
