Hi! Congratulations, I’m so excited for you! I love the English program here. It’s smaller than some of the other Northeastern programs, which I love. It allows you to really get closer with other students and the professors in your major, and that’s incredibly helpful whether you’re looking for recommendations or just somebody’s advice. I also enjoy how flexible the program is. Students have career intentions that range from law school to publishing to writing. Because of that, there’s a wide variety of classes that you can pick from depending on your interests.
As far as neuroscience, it’s absolutely possible to double major, and it’s even easier to have a minor. The main thing to be aware of if you’re double majoring (as opposed to a dual or combined major) is that you’ll need to take all the classes for both of your separate majors. It’s possible, it just leaves you with a lot less flexibility. Picking up a minor would enable you to enjoy both subjects and still have plenty of flexibility with requirements. But if you’re truly passionate about double majoring, then talk to your adviser and figure out how you could make that work!
Good luck and hopefully I’ll see you around campus, or maybe in class sometime!
