Switching college major after accepting internship--bad?

If you declare a major in XXX, get the internship but then realize that it isn't feasible to major in it, then turn the major into a minor, do firms care about this switch?

Don't want the firm to think I am lying or anything. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks.

It probably doesn't matter but if you really wanted to pursue an update, just send an email to HR and say "I have attached my updated resume," and you're covered.
