Question by Steve L: Film Studies + Communications + Minor?
I am double-majoring in Film Studies (focusing on Production) and Communications (more or less focusing on Mass Comm. and Advertising). I was wondering which would be more advantageous to either Grad school admission or employment.
a.) Taking more classes in the majors, hopefully increasing my depth of knowledge in the respective fields.
b.) Getting a minor in a more “classical” academic field, such as Political Science, History, or English?
I would think employers would prefer A., though I honestly don’t want to spend my years in college doing vocational work. I also suspect employers might be attracted to a minor in something else, as it’s evidence of breadth of interests.
Which way should I go?

Film Studies + Communications + Poli Sci/History/English = “Do You Want Fries With That?”
