Kelly Michelle’s Answer
Hi there! I got both of my degrees from the University of North Texas. My first one is in fashion merchandising and my second one is in interior merchandising and design. When I did this the two programs overlapped so my classes double dipped. I was also able to get a business focus because they are all similar classes under the catalog. If you can double major without going to school longer it works to your advantage in the job market it makes you VERY competitive.
The more you can do the better, just make sure you can master the material first.
At the end of the day it is all under “business” so if you have a specific interest start job shadowing and interning now to bulk up your resume and to confirm what you may want to do later on.
Kelly Michelle recommends the following next steps:
- Talk with your advisor and potential universities to see what you can get out of their programs
- Intern! Try to centralize your focus to see what your main interest is then go from there
