Nata, good question. While Business Administration+ Marketing and Public Relations may have many of the same classes, I would check that you can use one class and count it as credit for both fields of study. Some schools don't allow you to douple count courses and this will impact your decision (my school did not allow the majority of my classes to fulfill more than one requirement). If your school allows you to double count classes and you are able to balance the increase in work load, then go ahead and double major. Be warned that this will mean that you will have to work more and you will need to be able to balance more responsibilities, but this is entirely possible to do.
Having two majors never hurts and it can only help, it shows that you are a hard worker and are able to take on an increase in work load. This isn't to say that having a single major is bad or less than (I had one major and one minor), just that having two majors will sometimes impress a potential employer more so than a single major. I had many friends in college who double majored and they had no issue balancing the work load, so do not feel overwhelmed. If you feel as if you won't be able to handle the work load, then don't double major and instead make one of them a minor.
Think about the pros and cons of the decision and whether or not you will be able to handle the additional work load and added responsibility.
Austin recommends the following next steps:
- Think about the added pros and cons
- Ask yourself whether or not you will be able to handle the added workload
