The assumption here seems to be that you would have the knowledge you do now to affect your decision of major study area. This means that you would also have an accurate crystal ball years ago in order to predict the outcome of your decision.

My college major was Communications (then known as Journalism School when I started), but instead of a crystal ball, I kept a close eye on the job market over the time I was in college. What I learned was that even in the 70s, the majority of J-school graduates were finding it tough to find work in that field. Most took their degrees into other fields entirely in order to make a living after graduation. You might say that the ROI on their degree was not what their advisers or they thought it would be (or what they had been told it would be).

Keeping abreast of job prospects all the time in school is what saved me compared to my peers. Many did not do as well as I did in the years after college — in fact some did much worse.

All because they had not kept an eye on employment trends while in school.

The same holds true today. When you enter college now, at the end of your time there the hot area everyone is looking to staff now has a glut of newly-graduated people for an ever-smaller number of openings to apply to. Today, it’s important that you look far beyond four years to determine what collection of skills may be in demand by future employers in order to survive.
