Is it possible to major in photojournalism and take the required pre med classes for medical school at BU? Thanks.

    I don't see why not. It wouldn't exactly be common, though.

    Yeah I have varied interests. First choice is NYU Tisch's Photography/Imaging program w/the pre-med classes but BU is my second choice if I don't get into NYU.

    By the way, thanks for the insight.

    I've been to COM graduations and each year a surprising number graduate with 2 degrees under the BUCOP thing, most with honors. I don't think I've seen an ENG / COM but there are lots of CAS / COM and SMG / COM grads.

    It would keep you quite busy. Still, it's quite possible to double major between schools (what we call a BUCOP) even as pre-med here. It's one of BU's greatest assets.

    If you have good scores (generally 4/5 but 3 occasionally) in AP classes, you'll be in even better shape too. It'll get you ahead of the game in settling requirements.
