Hi
I'm almost 100 % sure that I will be attending the University of North Dakota. My major will be commercial aviation. I realize that I will need a fall back. So I want to pursue a second major or a minor, but I'm afraid that I will be WAY too busy. What are your thoughts on my situation?

Hi...

Air Traffic Control. There are many students (such as myself) who started as a Commercial Aviation major but for one reason or another switched to ATC majors.

Many of the Commercial Aviation classes are the same for Air Traffic Control makes it easy to double major. Other options include Aviation Managment and Airport Management. Outside of aviation majors, I am not going to be much help.

From what I hear, he is right, I have heard from my ATC instructor at Bowling Green State University that the ATC program at UND is one of the best.

So, I would suggest the same, but keep in mind that whatever you want to do, be sure you put everything into it that you possibly can. Stay sharp and keep your nose up on those soft field landings.

I am studying ATC at UND starting the fall of this year. Also, I am doing a double major as well, ATC and Airport Managment. You would be surprised, a lot of the courses are the same, so it shouldnt take you that much longer to graduate or that many more classes. I would say go for it, try it out.

I will be double majoring in Commercial Aviation and ATC this summer at UND. It should be boatloads of fun! The world needs more good pilots and controllers in the future.

It really isnt hard to double major with commercial aviation up here most students double with a business degree of some sort.

I was actually thinking about doing a Commercial Aviation & Music double major at UND in a few years, but that would probably be way too hard, since aviation and music are totally different worlds.  Smile

I'm old school here; but aren't we limiting our career choices with these majors? I would suggest a major and a minor that is different. Way back when (1970's) Majored: Criminal Justice; Minor: Business Management and Masters in Education.
I had numerous opportunities with his combination. It's all about increasing the number of choice available to you when you graduate.
