French and and an art class. It will be pretty epic I hope. especially since I have to be up at 6 each morning to make it to french class. (this might be a suicide mission).

Yaaay this thread! I've been wanting to find it but I never could (apparently I suck?). Next semester I am taking:

Evolution
Conservation Biology
Environmental Microbiology
Japanese Religions
Death & Dying

As of today I am officially double majoring in Biology and Religious Studies. I think that the new semester will be great, and hopefully my grades will be good enough to snag an interview for vet school.

Just out of curiosity, what made you decide to double major in religious studies? It's an interesting combination.


I was raised completely outside of religion (despite my parents both being Christians) so it is absolutely fascinating to me. I love the classes because I am able to get really good grades in them, and the material is really stimulating. I think it's a nice complement to all the sciences. Plus, since I typically take classes in the spring/summer term as well, I can still graduate after four years with the double major, which I think is much more impressive to admissions committees than just one (I hope).

Also, I think that, as a veterinarian, it will be important to have a solid humanities education because it is such a people-focused job - there's a person attached to every one of those animals, and they are just as important to your job as the patient themselves. I hope that my religious studies education will make me more approachable and easier for people to talk to when they bring a patient to me.

Roboethics
Internet in American Life
Information Systems Theory and Practice
Strategic Management Capstone
and the speaker series, which is a credit/no-credit requirement in which I attend three or four lectures by guest speakers and have to write something about them.

I'm mostly looking forward to Roboethics and Internet in American Life, but none of these are particularly un-fun for my last undergrad semester. Except maybe the capstone, but I've been told it's just a review of the core business classes.

Activists Writing Media
Creative Writing: Forms
Spanish IV
Public Relations and the Corporate Environment

Seems like it'll be a pretty good semester. I got way too excited when I read about the activists writing media class; this is the first time it's being offered.
