I've done some searching ever since I got to college and kinda followed my parents path and it took me 70 credit hours to realize I hate my current major. I've researched different fields and plan to minor in geology and found environmental science is an easy transfer and a lot of my classes will not be wasted. I will graduate in about the same time but may take an extra semester at most. My mom is pissed and said that is a waste of a degree and doesn't want me to be a park ranger or go to grad school go work on how to manage where bodily wastes go. She said if I change she will no longer pay help pay for school.
Should I change career paths even if my parents threaten to cut off the funding for my education?

My parents told me they'd pay for 4 years of school. If I changed my major or wanted to continue on, after the 4 years, the bill was on me. Seemed fair. Not sure if cutting funding is fair in your case, but if I were footing the bill for college I'd be pissed if they decided halfway through to switch majors and go longer. I'd cut them off after 4 years too. If you want to go on and switch then own it and pay for it.0
Wow... that's shitty, change now while you can instead of being miserable the rest of your life0
I've seen from my own mom that she is very resentful of her mother. She always squashed my moms dreams and basically flattened her self esteem. So i would do what you want to do. you'll be resentful later in life if your mom stops you and she will forgive you at some point mostlikely. Whenever you make a descion just remember, is this YOUR life or theirs?0
Yes you should.0

Definitely go with what you want. Your mother should ashamed that she doesn't support what you want. My mom fully supports what I want to do and told me when she was a kid her parents didn't support her dream to be a horse trainer so she didn't do it. She says she regrets that all the time. It'll suck IF she really does cut funding but you may just end up with a little more student loans...0
