A question about university degrees? Topic: Undergraduate thesis topics
June 26, 2019 / By Wilmer
Question: I heard that people can "double major" while in college/university. So when they graduate they will have two degrees like lets say English and Journalism. So the person will have a Master degree that says that the person majored in two subjects, right? So what is a minor? Is that the Associates Degree? I've heard my friends saying that they want to major in something plus minor in another subject. I don't think this is the "double major". Can anyone explain to me the differences between "double major" and a "minor"? I want to study broadcasting when I go to college. Is there a way for me to double major like take English and journalism and also have a minor in Japanese? I even heard that some people can "triple major". How does that work? Do you stay longer in college/university? Thanks Thanks Diana A. Idk why lol.. I was just curious on why people would triple major. I know that BA is ok.. and Master is like graduate school. right?

First of all, you are mixing things up. There are 2 undergraduate degrees: associates (2 years and the first or lowest degree) then a bachelors. AFTER graduating with a bachelors you get a masters, then/or a PhD. Majors, minors, double majors have nothing to do with that. (a masters degree will not say they have a 2 subject bachelors major). Then majors: your university sets up a # of credits, which classes, and any special requirements (such as a comprehensive exam or a thesis) you need to complete to get granted a major. If you do both sets of these requirements for 2 different subjects; you have a double major; this is not required to graduate (only 1 major is) but people do it for various reasons. Lessor # of credits & classes (and usually no special requirements) in another field can give you a minor. So a minor has fewer classes & units & no special requirements such as a thesis. It usually is for someone who has an interest in another topic; or enhances the major. You could triple major, but the question would be why? And yes, you would be in college 1-2 years longer. Also a double major and a minor would also keep you in college longer. It is not necessary to do a formal minor with a dbl major--you could just take the classes you find interesting or useful. When you do a more formal major or minor, you MUST take all the classes the university requires to complete it.

Acting/Theatre Arts: -NYU (Tisch) -Yale -DePaul -CMU -BU -NCSA -Purchase -USC -Emerson -Chapman -UCI -UCLA -CSUF Do you need a BFA/MFA degree to act? Nope. Will it help? maybe... I majored in both business and music in college. The business degree was my best decision for many reasons. Because of it I have been more successful than my colleagues who have either started the same time as I did or have been doing this much longer. Thanks to my business degree, I have been able to successfully market myself, network effectively, be more professional, avoid scams, know tax loopholes/write offs, etc. It has also helped me produce multiple streams of income so I can pursue acting because I enjoy it and NOT as a source of income. This is called show BUSINESS, not show-screwing around. Also, I believe college is about experiencing as much as you can. Audit as many classes outside of your major and get involved with campus activities. Part of acting is living the life. Get a rich college experience so you have a good story to tell through your experiences. My beef is with year+ institutions like AADA and BFA/MFA programs is this. I believe in being more diverse in my training. The year+ programs can sometimes be like factories where they churn out actors who are taught pretty much the same thing through a structured curriculum. What might work for one person, will NOT work for a different person. Also, a lot of the conservatories and BFA/MFA programs have strict policies such as NOT being able to audition outside of their school or study at other places simultaneously. I think this is limiting to the actor. The actor should have the freedom to audition for outside projects and add to the current curriculum. Non Collegiate Acting Classes: In LA: Cold Reading/Auditioning (Ranked from Top to Bottom) -Margie Haber -Brian Reise -Amy Lyndon Commercials -Hey, I Saw Your Commercial! -Chris Game -Stuart K. Robinson -Stuart Stone -Killian McHugh -Francine Selkirk-Akerman -Carolyne Barry Improv (All four are great) -Groundlings -Second City -Upright Citizens Brigade -Improv Olympic Scene Study/Acting (It varies. Some schools are not for everyone. Chubbuck, Eric Morris, and Howard Fine are not for people who aren't fans of Strasberg or Uta Hagen (ie. affective memory and substitution.) Playhouse West, Joanne Baron/DW Brown, and Acting Corps are more Meisner oriented. Try to audit these places and make sure if they're for you or not. -Doug Warhit -Kimberly Jentzen -Beverly Hills Playhouse -Howard Fine -Stella Adler -Ivanna Chubbuck -Joanne Baron/D.W. Brown -Tom Todoroff -Playhouse West -Aaron Speiser -Acting Corps -Eric Morris Comedy: -Scott Sedita -Lesly Kahn In NY: -William Esper Studios -Stella Aldler -T. Schreiber -HB Studios -Margie Haber -Redwall Productions (Rosalyn Coleman) -Upright Citizens Brigade -The Atlantic School

People can only double major in undergraduate school, so that means no master's. They can have two bachelors, one in English and one in Journalism, like your example. But not for graduate school. An associate's degree is a 2-year degree at undergrad, and a minor is a secondary focus (think of it like a half-major) in undergrad. A major and a minor are different than a double major, the latter is still more coursework (like a major and two minors). Yes, you can do that. It will be difficult, but you can. I myself plan on double majoring linguistics and Russian. Some schools allow triple majors, but they are very difficult and often take 5 years to complete.
