Is a Double Major Worth It?

Typically choosing a dual major is tough, and extremely tough if you are trying to graduate in 4 years. If you can get the classes you need for one of the majors, you could be forced to stay at school longer costing you or or your parents more in the long run.

Also keep in mind when you have two majors in different area’s of study, you will typically have two different advisors to meet with, different requirements to meet with each, and totally different topics to study.

If you choose two majors in the same area of study (ex: Finance and Accounting are both Business Majors) some of what you learn will overlap and support what you learn in the other major.

If you are confident you can pull it off, graduating with dual majors will help when you are looking for a job, but you have to weigh the pros and cons to see if it is worth it.

Double the major = Double the work
– but –
Double the major <> Double the salary (does not usually equal)
