Is majoring in economics and Japanese, with a minor in Global and International Studies a good road?
I will be definitely majoring in Japanese...but I am not sure if I should also major in economics...or international relations... I was leaning towards doing a double major in economics and japanese, with a minor in global and international studies...but I'm not sure. Since an economics degree can get me further along...(with jobs/careers)...I thought that this would be the best path. Just in case an international relations degree won't help me. I was also thinking about doing an international relations and japanese double major, minoring in economics. But if I did that, I don't know if I'd be able to get a good job/career. What do you think? Should I just do what I'm doing? (Econ/Jap double major and minor in international studies) If I do, do this, then I was thinking about being an International Trade Specialist...but if majoring in international relations...then maybe something similar...or the foreign service.

Why don't you think of where you want your education to lead you? i.e. what career you'd like to have? Some jobs just want you to have a degree but some are more specific. Take the courses that are most specialized for the job you want.

I have no idea what you would do with an international relations degree, never seen a job opening ask for one. But, I love the idea of Econ/Japanese. In certain industries like mine the Japanese language would be very helpful, and a smart analytical person schooled in Economics and business who speaks Japanese would... More
