  • Another "which degree" question...

    I apologize for asking the usual “which major” question which has been ask many many times on this forum, but I would really appreciate it if I get feedback from you guys since this will affect the outcome of my future. I have been thinking about a political science major which interests me, but not as much as a languages and culture degree which is offered at my university. My career choice would be FBI, Secret Service or CIA.

    So far, I speak, Spanish, Italian, basic Portuguese and basic Arabic as well as writing Arabic. If I take the language major, I will have many opportunities to improve my language skills through the university and also through a nearby university which definitely gets me excited and I know I will do well in. If I do major in languages and culture, I will most likely minor in political science. I know it’s obvious that I prefer the languages in culture major, but would this help me more than a major in political science? Again, I apologize for asking the usual which major question but I would love to hear some feedback. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated!

    My personal experience. You are better off with the languages. Political science is pretty ho-hum as far as degrees go and wont get you any preference in any of those agencies. If anything, the languages will make you a stand out.

      Go with a language, and get fluent. Spanish is good, but rather common. If you can master Arabic, I'm sure the FBI would be intersted.
