    Hi,Casiopea.
    Thank you very much.
    Your reply is very clear and helpful.
    So because I am still in the school now,
    I should use I am majoring in/ My major is..is it?


    In fact, I've written a letter of motivation."major" is in one sentence of the letter.
    May I ask u to have a look at the letter to see if there's any problem in English?

    Right. You could also use, "I am a ____ major"; e.g., I am an English major.

    You could drop it into the Editing and Writing Forum.

    All the best.
