Nearly half of Albright students cross or combine majors to create individualized academic programs, without taking longer to graduate.
Here at Albright College, we have something that's unique. And these are called co- majors. Co-majors are two half majors, which means you take essentially half the number of courses in each major that really emphasizes what we call interdisciplinarity. Meaning you're not just going to study one thing, you really understand how things connect, and work together.
You walk out of here with still a full bachelor's degree. But it's about two things that you care about, instead of having to pick one specific area that you're really, really interested in.
I came in declared as a full math major, but I got really into doing theater like, and like doing it as like something I actually wanted to do with my life.
I love the idea of having an American Civilization major. And then once I got here, I realized that I really wanted to do more administrative work. So that's where Arts Administration came in.
It's okay to come in to school and not know what you want to major or co-major in. Every faculty member has a number of advisors to help them plan out their courses and where they want to go, and what they want to do.
Well, I have really good relationships with both of mine in my department. I am actually looking for an internship soon, and they're working together to help me find the correct internship for my major.
For me, it was a lot of the connections that I was able to get with my professors that really sold me on Albright because I was able to talk to like at least three or four different professors before I even came here.
And that's why I wanted to work here, because that's how you help people by getting to know them, and then giving them what they need.
