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?
