I'm not sure if I should major and minor, Double major and minor, major or double minor.
So, I plan to become a Cosmetic Surgeon and Major in Biochemistry once I start college. I want to study Spanish and Korean; Spanish because I've been studying it for years in school and would be very beneficial for communication with future patients and Korean because I am very intrigued by Korean language and culture and plan to study abroad and even live there for a while. Now, I'm wondering what would be best to do: Major in Biochem and minor in the Korean language and take Spanish classes? Or double major in a language and biochem and minor in a language? Or Major in biochem and minor in foreign languages in general? Or lastly, a double major in Biochem and foreign languages in general. Do you get to choose the languages to major/minor in for general foreign language studies? I just have so many questions, XD. Thanks for your time.4 replies
