School Insanity

I think I men­tioned that my school is start­ing a pre-law pro­gram. Well, the uni­ver­si­ty would­n’t let them call it pre-law. It had to have “tech­nol­o­gy” or “tech­ni­cal” in the name some­where. Tech­ni­cal­ly, it’s the Inter­na­tion­al stud­ies: Glob­al Tech­nol­o­gy major with a con­cen­tra­tion in “Tech­nol­o­gy and the Law.”

I don’t want to switch majors, but I want it. This means I’m think­ing about a dou­ble major. I could at least move from the BS track in tech­ni­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tions to the BA in Inter­na­tion­al Tech­ni­cal Com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Both require more for­eign lan­guages, which I like. I would­n’t take a “con­cen­tra­tion” in any tech­ni­cal field or do a sur­vey of dif­fer­ent tech­ni­cal fields (each kind of engi­neer­ing, com­put­er sci­ence, archi­tec­ture, etc.) and would add more social sci­ence courses—again, I’m quite hap­py with that. If I could, I’d take every his­to­ry course they offer.

I’m sure it’ll take longer. I’m also sure that I must be nuts. But the dou­ble major appeals to me far more than the sin­gle. And it can’t hurt to actu­al­ly gain flu­en­cy in a for­eign lan­guage, right? I’m fig­ur­ing Span­ish is the most prac­ti­cal of those offered on cam­pus. I’d hap­pi­ly study more than one—I’ve had some French in the past, and I love the sound of Italian.

I am nuts, aren’t I?
