Admissions Advice

double major or major/minor

Hi, I’m a current college freshman and I’m still trying to figure out if I want to double major or major/minor.

I am currently majoring in psychology (and before anyone says it, yes I do know simply changing my major is an option but I currently don’t want to do that) and was originally majoring in sociology. I LOVE sociology I find it extremely interesting and for no reason other than my own enjoyment do I want to double major in it. Might I add I have no idea what I want to do as a career currently so that has nothing to do with it.

My school offers a certificate program for ASL and I wanted to partake in that as well. I would have to speak with an advisor to help sway my decision as well because a double minor on top of the certificate may be a little too overwhelming for me but I wanted other opinions as well.

Should I double major in Psych and Soci or Continue to major in Psych and minor in Soci?

Also I may be biting off entirely too much and this has nothing to do with my question just extra info, but i’ve been thinking about minoring in journalism.
