Much help needed on picking a Major

<p>I'm a 2nd year double majoring in International Studies - Political Science and Music Composition. I very much love politics and government and am very passionate about music. However, I'm concerned about my post-undergrad prospects as an IS - poli sci major and was wondering what you guys thought in terms of switching majors among these options.</p>

<p>Option 1
Majors: International Studies - Econ (or maybe just Econ BA?, so less math intensive than BS) and Music Composition
Graduate by: Likely 4th year
Interest level: 7/10</p>

<p>Option 2
Majors: Economics BS (which would mean joint with some form of intensive math) and Music Composition
Graduate by: Likely 5th year if I can get lucky with my schedule
Interest level: 5/10</p>

<p>Option 3
Stay where I'm at
Interest level: 9/10</p>

<p>So some things to keep in mind:
- The only reason I even bring up Econ BS is because I know that that would be the best major in terms of job prospects/grad school after undergrad
- I wouldn't say I'm passionate about math, but I'm sure if I worked at it hard enough I'd be able to get by. Econ would definitely be more challenging, but it's doable I believe. I took AP Calc in high school (got a 5) and took a couple quarters of Calc in college.
- Dropping my music major (or even minoring) is not an option.</p>

<p>So I guess what it comes down to is this - is it worth taking on a rather great challenge in an area that I'm somewhat interested in for the sake of really making my bachelors count? Or do I stick with the subject I'm more passionate about but risk making life after undergrad more difficult?</p>

<p>Any and all levels of advice (professional, intuitive, anything) are greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>What is it you want to do when you graduate? I get that grad school of some sort is part of the plan eventually, but there are lots of directions you can go.</p>

<p>I would say go for Economics.</p>

<p>1) It fits in nicely with your interests
2) You won't live in a box.</p>

<p>I would say go for what you're passionate about. </p>

<p>1) It fits in perfectly with your interests
2) You won't live in a box.</p>
