Double majoring?

Recommended Posts


Is anyone aware of how admissions committees view double majors?  I will be graduating with my B.S. in CSD this spring, originally with a minor in psychology, but I saw that if I hold out until summer 2017, just a semester after I was supposed to graduate, I could pull off obtaining a B.A. in Psychology as well.  My interests lie in medical speech pathology and all things related, including psycholinguistics and behavioral neuroscience, which are courses I am able to take through my psychology department at my school.

Although my last 60 credits and major GPA is pretty competitive (3.88), my cumulative GPA isn't stellar (3.4), and so I'm really looking for things to help me stand out.  I have volunteering, NSSLHA officer and research experience, and also have my CNA and have worked in the health care field for just under a year.  Even with all of this under my belt, I still don't feel like I have enough to really make an impact surrounded by far superior applicants, and was wondering if anyone knew if a double major might help with that.

If I do decide to double major and I end up not being able to graduate until July/early August, can I still apply for entrance into the Fall 2017 school year for grad programs?  Or would programs consider cutting that too close?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
