Not only will that make you an astoundingly well-rounded individual, it will also assist you in whatever career you choose to pursue. Each department is full of terrific faculty and opportunities for experiential education, whether it's study abroad, undergraduate research or hands-on internships. Best of all, you can pair your major with a minor that will add value to your next step beyond your bachelor's degree.
