Double Majoring with MT ~ A correction by my kid ;)

After hearing me say the "wrong" thing the other day for the zillionth time, my Rider grad corrected me the other day and I thought it was worth mentioning here. When you do a BFA MT and "double-major" you're actually a DUAL DEGREE student. In his case, it was BFA MT and BA Arts Administration. So not only are you meeting the reqs for 4-year BFA curriculum, but trying to fit in a BA curriculum as well. Son tells me this is important distinction that shouldn't be overlooked, since that means figuring out the BA gen-eds (hence the need for online courses and/or APs/IBs) to crowbar those in. In his case, the reward was actually two diplomas on the wall. But it's a lot of work. So there ya go -- DUAL DEGREE students, not DOUBLE MAJORS if we're talking BFA+BA route.

(Also, it's still me, aka @MTTwinsinCA, for some reason I cannot login to that account...)
