Taking On Art History For My Second Major

Happy April Fools’ Day, all! As some may have guessed, I am not in fact adding a second major just a month before my graduation. As much I do appreciate the beauty of art, I am not nearly dedicated enough to the discipline to make that kind of commitment to it 🙂

Monet's Water Lily Pond
Monet’s Water Lilly Pond is one of the beautiful paintings that inspired this decision.

I love computers. They make life interesting and I could never give up working with them, but I’ve always felt that something was missing. That something is art.

After thinking long and hard about this, I have decided to pick up a second major in Art History. I feel that this additional major, in combination with the minor in Anthropology that I already picked up and my soon-to-be-complete major in Computer Science, will give me a broader appreciation of the world, both computationally and artistically.

Unfortunately I do not have as much time as I would like to discuss all my reasons for this decision, but stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information.
