I'm kinda crazy.
No, but seriously, I've decided that I want to major in Anthropology and Environmental Studies, with minors in French and Spanish; and although nothing is "official" yet (besides the Anthro Major), I'm stubborn and confident that I will be able to do this.
But it's not like I can just pull this out of the air, I know this is going to require extra planning, hard work, and summer courses at my hometown university. Here's what I've done so far:
- Made a list of all the requirements for my various majors/minors, as well as the Liberal Studies Requirements (LSR's).
- Checked for any overlapping class requirements between majors (GG101 - Intro to Human Geography was one).
- Chose a possible "study aboad experience", which is required for the Anthro major (I'm thinking my junior-year fall semester in Cameroon).
- Made a tentative 4-year plan (including summer classes), accounting for credits from high school and credits I will get from study abroad.
It's a pretty rough draft, but it's a start! It contains all my required classes, and now I at least know what I'm getting myself into! And since I made this, I've met with my advisor and we figured out a few things we have to work out, like planning in my honors courses, which I should be able to do. Basically, this isn't a final copy.
