SF Chronicle: Triple Majors Standing Out Above Crowd At UC Berkeley

posted by Randall



UC Berkeley Campanile There are more than 25,000 undergraduates at UC Berkeley, but 27 stand out above the rest.  It’s not because of their GPA’s or their athletic prowess. These students are triple threats. They’ll leave UC Berkeley with degrees from three different majors.  How is that possible in a demanding academic environment where classes are often impacted? The students acknowledge it takes a lot of organization and late nights studying. “I do my best to plan ahead,” said Shuonan Chen. “If I have (school) projects, I try to get things done as soon as I get it. For me, I guess, I just don’t like having a thing on my mind.” Chen is majoring in economics, business administration and rhetoric with plans to go to law school. A typical Berkeley students takes an average of 15 course units a semester. Chen takes 20. Being a triple major is not without sacrifice. “I’d say it definitely helps during the job search,” Joanna Jao said. “When people see it on your resume, it already sets you apart. “But honestly, if I went back, I’m not sure I would have done it. Not having that third major leaves so much more room in your schedule.”  See what it takes to be a triple major in the SF Chronicle
