Q:Do a lot of people take FYS out of the area of their major? I want to double major and I dont know if this is a bad idea
It really depends.
I say take any FYS. They are really specific classes that first-years usually don’t get the chance to take, and are taught by REAL professors who love what they’re teaching.
Maybe look for something outside your major that still interests you. Freshman and some of sophomore year are really the only chances you have to take things that interest you, rather than things that just complete your major requirements. Don’t miss out on that.
