you might want to reconsider that and major in one and minor in the other. *Yeah, if you can handle it a double major is cool but starting out like that can kill you. *Especially considering the fact that, in most cases, your first year (and much of your second) is spent knocking out the boring ass core classes that you have to take no matter what your major is.

Of all the people I know that graduated with double majors, all but one or two of them were only single majors until they got towards the end of their degrees and then realized they only needed a few extra classes for the second major. *Usually that's from switching majors at some point, or taking some extra classes towards a minor.

The people I know that started out trying to double ended up dropping one of them or doing really poorly at both. *The course work in college isn't really that hard (that's a comparative simplification) compared to being able to actually get all the work done. *Seriouly, for your own sanity, pick the area you like more and major in it, while pursing a minor in the other. *If you decide you can do it after seeing what they're both like, then I would declare both as majors.

Personally, I think everyone should have to stick with a general studies program the first year. (except for very specific programs). *It's easy to screw up your program (getting the pre-reqs for upper-division classes done, fulfilling your core, finding those pass-fail electives to fill up the space) when you get too specific too early in your college career. *But that's just my opinion based on how I screwed up my shit in school.

I have degrees in history and political science. *History was my first degree with a Poli Sci minor (after first having a PS major and history minor), I then went back and filled in a few blanks for the Political Science BA later.

Re: What Is Or Was Your Major In College?

wow, first 3 responses are all people currently doubling, and CS is included as the second in all 3.

Can I ask why? Do you like one more than the other? Including CS because that's where you think the money is?

Re: What Is Or Was Your Major In College?

Agree with murph182

Double major will screw up if you're not smart enough to ace all the classes you take.

I'm majoring in Computer Engineering (now).
Might change to Electrical
