Hi, I’m majoring in linguistics and international relations and I was wondering which of these schools are strongest in these fields?
UCSD- international relations- linguistics (1 major), hoping for Eleanor Roosevelt
UC Davis- double major
UCR- double major
SDSU (honors college??)- double major
CSUN- double major
NAU- international affairs, pursue linguistics cert
I know UCSD and UCD are very strong in STEM and SDSU is known for business and criminal justice. I appreciate that UCSD has a highly specific major for me, but I wonder if their STEM department overshadows everything else. Heard Davis has a small linguistics dept and I don’t really know anything about the other schools. Anyone who is knowledgeable about the departments at these schools or who has studied in them, please share!!
I am super passionate about both of these things and I want to go into political or international law. I am considering minoring in linguistics but I am really into it and I enjoy learning about language structure. I don’t want to let go of either but I also want to graduate in 3 or 4 years without going broke. I plan to work and pursue internships as well. Am I crazy for wanting to double major or does this sound like a feasible plan? The main overlap between them is that they both require study of a language. Btw I am thinking about going to paralegal school during soph or junior year of college at a cc and getting a cert so I can work in the legal field right after graduation, plus I’ll have my double major. Thoughts???
