Episode 53: When a double major or minor is the right (or wrong) choice 

In this episode, I share things to consider when you are trying to decide if you should add that Double Major or minor. Sometimes it's not the best choice! Other times, it makes so much sense! Bottomline - YOU get to decide. Just make sure you are thinking through the decision.
