EDIT: oops, should this go in the guidance section? OK, so right now I'm signed up as a major in Literature/Writing. I haven't started yet, I start this fall and I'm doing my timetable right now. One of the requisites for the major is 4 non-arts classes. I figured since I've gotten to like physics and math so much this would be a perfect opportunity to actually take some classes. Since I didn't do math in high-school I had to speak with the Math dept. and show them that I've been learning it on my own and they said I can take these two classes that are linear algebra and calculus, but include one extra lecture a week that is intended for those who didn't do well at math on their last high-school year (it reviews grade 12 calculus/algebra and then goes into first year stuff, so they said that it's quite intense and I have to be sure I wanna take it) Anyway, I've been talking it over with my parents to try this out and that if I do well and can handle it, I want to find out if it's possible to do a double in literature and physics. I don't know if you're allowed to combine two subjects that are so different, I haven't asked yet because I'm still not sure, but I read the part about double majors on their website and some of the examples they give seem just as different (one of the examples was something like philosophy and computer engineering). or are most doubles expected to be in similar areas? has anyone here done or is doing a double major in two very different subjects? would you recommend it?
