F-1 visa issue: I-20 shows a different major

This isn't a rare one. Same thing happened to my sister. 

In her case, her major was Pre-pharmacy, written as Chemistry which wasn't a mistake. When inputting majors, there are codes and in my school's case the code for Pre-pharm and Chem are the same. Ask for an official explanation from your school, and let the Consular Officer know during the interview. Not a big deal.

It's also easy to fix a change in major on the I-20. You can wait till you get your visa and get to school, then ask the international student office for an update-I-20.
