    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

A Tale of Two Majors

There is something interesting about being a double major. Depending with what your two majors are, you can get a lot of stares, praises, how-could-yous, and other reactions that often come with choosing to study two or more majors! I know quite a lot of students who are studying 2 majors and a handful who are studying three (can count this species). Many double majors pick subjects that are either complementary or overlapping. Others go for subjects on opposite ends of the academic spectrum and these may not be directly related at all. I belong to the former group – the one who subjects overlap or complement each other. Most of the classes required for my Computer Information Systems concentration(Math) are part of my Math major curriculum requirements.

This is an advantage in that I have classes that I am required to take fulfilling requirements for another major. One advantage to is that one subject, being complementary to the other, benefits from knowledge gained from the other subject. I can apply concepts I learn in my Math classes to some of my CIS classes requiring such thought processes and skills. The Math department actually recommends students to double major and not only study Math. I know a few other Math majors who study Education, Music, languages such as Spanish, German, etc

If one can do it, I definitely recommend picking up two majors, especially for those students who come in with extra credits and such.
