philanthrium asked: Hi Jackie, I was accepted into Northeastern as a Class of 2018 Journalism major (yay!), and I was just wondering if you knew anything about the combined major programs, like Journalism and Computer Science. Did you take on any extra minors/majors? How hard is it to balance two majors at Northeastern? Does it affect your ability to take on co-ops? Thank you!
Hey there! Congrats on the acceptance - yay Northeastern!
I didn’t even know there was a combined major for Journalism and comp science but I did indeed complete two minors along with my major (communication and business administration) - I probably could’ve added a third minor if I organized my classes more from the start - it’s not hard to double major/minor with the journalism major- there’s not a ton of requirements compared with other majors so it gives you the freedom to explore other areas of study.
It didn’t affect my ability to do co-ops from my perspective, but I graduated in 4 years and did a dialogue too.
Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have other questions!
