I want to be able to say "my major is philosophy" and so I looked up the word for philosophy, but I'm not sure if it would be correct use the same word when talking about it as a major in college?

In other words, would this be correct?

私は専攻が哲学です。

Thank you!!

ありがとうございました!

Hi Nikola-san,

My major is Philosophy. = "私の専攻は哲学です。" or  "私は専攻が哲学です。"  
Actually there is a subtle difference in the nuance, but you can say either way.
