Major in engineering with a minor in ballet

Hi, I am in High School and want to become an environmental Engineer. I also have a huge passion for ballet. Do you think it is possible to major in engineering and minor in ballet in college?

Hi Claire! That is totally possible. I was in a dance organization for a short period while in college, but I knew many people who were long time members of dance companies in college as well as outside dance instructors, etc. while still being an engineer. Although it might be slightly more difficult that doing something like math where you have to take most of those courses anyways for your major, it is not impossible. Many universities have resources for students who are studying two very different fields and sometimes have special advisors or more than one advisor for those students, so make sure you inquire with your college when you get there about what support can be given to you so that you choose classes that will make your schedule easier. Great question, let me know if you have any further questions! :)
