Academic Interests

One of the short answer questions is what are your academic interests and how will you pursue them at USC...I want to major in Business, but I am confused about what academic interests are?

    Tell them why you want to study Business, and take the chance to say if you wish to learn something else besides that. You could, for example, write that you want to double-major once you get there.

    Ivkewlkid--USC wants to know you have done your research well and have a real interest in attending--to distinguish applicants who are just applying to a lot of random business undergrad programs. In this short essay, you can show you understand the unique opportunities Marshall offers to study business, and it is even better if you can talk about what you plan to do with that training in the future. It will help if you can be specific and name which professors, classes, or special programs USC Marshall offers that will fit your academic goals, and even talk a little about what you hope to achieve in that class.

    Best of luck.
