As I said in my last blog, I went through a few majors before I settled on Cognitive Science. There were just too many options, and classes (mainly just calculus) that I did not think I could handle. I started Cog Sci because it seemed like a very intriguing field. After my first semester being a Cog Sci major I knew I wanted to stick with it. Because Cog Sci covers a broad area of subjects, I had my choice for electives. I looked into classes in Psychology because that had been an interest of mine in the past. I started taking a few upper division Psych classes and really liked them. I finally realized that I should consider psych as a minor. After going to the peer advisers in the psych department, I was told that it would be just as easy for me to double major. I was surprised because since I had declared my cog sci major so late I never thought double majoring would be an option. To make it even better, I would still be able to graduate on time! I think in all of the psychology classes I have taken, the professor has actually talked about cog sci at least once in the course. There is a strong link between psych and cog sci. They go together so well that it makes sense to double major in Cog Sci and Psych. I love both my majors, and hey I’ll have two degrees when I graduate! I never thought that would happen.
