What if your wanting to major in culinary arts and sports medicine?

For someone who is interested in both of the majors how could we combine them? because they're in two totally different fields. Is it better just to make one a minor and the other your major? #sports #culinary-arts #medical-field #wrestling

Hi Carlos,


I think to help you get a clear image of what it will be like to work in both fields, you might want to shadow someone for a day. Write down questions you might want to ask: Like what is a normal day like for you? What college did you go to? What did you wish you knew about this field before you got into it?


This will help you get a realistic look at both fields. You might end up realizing you want to do one or the other. If you still like to do both, I think there are colleges that offer major/minors. I, myself, dual majored and I took easy classes for one field and hard classes for one during a semester until they balanced out. It will possibility take long and cost more. But if it is where your heart lays, do both. You won't regret it.


Side note: My husband always wanted to do culinary arts, but his passion for sound design took him down another path. He bakes the best macarons and I'm super spoiled, but he gets to practice both passions whatever he likes. So sometimes, it doesn't have to be one or the other, it can still be both. Good luck!


Dream big, Vivian

Lisa’s Answer

There are some who have dual majors. It's a lot of hard work, but you should find an advisor on your campus who can help you negotiate the required classes to fulfill both, if that's what you'd like to do!


I always wanted to be a biologist, but I also had a passion for art, philosophy and the French language. So, I indulged all of those passions and combined all of those areas of study in my time at a community college and then at Michigan State University and then at the University of Caen in France. I was able to win scholarships to make all of those things happen by working hard, studying a lot and getting good grades. I also had some wonderful academic advisors that helped me figure it all out.


I ended up graduating with an Associate's in Science, then a Bachelor of Science with minors in Philosophy and French language. So that is another route you could take - make one your major and then minor in the other - it all depends on what you have as your career aspirations!


Best of luck in your studies.
