UC Berkeley-Double majoring in Peace and Conflict/Middle Eastern Studies as a transfer?
I'm a current community college student, applying to Berkeley for transfer in November(would begin fall 2016). I'm in the Transfer Alliance Program, have a 3.9 GPA, and am super passionate about my subject. I'm optimistic but am TAGing Davis as well. Does anybody know how feasible it would be to double major as a transfer in MES and PACS? I would have to begin my Arabic language studies at Cal, since my school does not offer it, but was thinking I might be able to knock out a couple of the 4 semesters required by studying abroad in Jordan for a semester. I definitely want to have a life and some time for extracurriculars, but my original intended major, PACS, has so much crossover with MES because my focus is in the Middle East. And really, I am going to need to learn Arabic either way, so I'm thinking it might enhance my educational experience. Any thoughts? Also curious if anyone knows how taking 5 semesters to complete would be handled: both majors seem to require that 2 classes be taken senior year, each during a specific semester to finish up, but that seems to assume you are graduating in Spring? I'm sure they have something in place for people taking longer, just not sure what it is. Holler if you are planning/enrolled in either of these majors too!
