A minor setback for my anthropological career.

I talked to the head of the anthropology department today about my double major. He signed my paper for a major/minor, but warned that he really didn't think I'd be able to do a double major, given the current political situation at the school. SJSU wants students OUT as fast as possible, so even if you can prove that a double major is important/essential to a future career,the school is unlikely to approve it. He thought it was definitely best for me to apply for the minor, which they would be highly unlikely to reject, and if I thought I still wanted the major in a few months, try to 'upgrade' the minor.

I still have to speak to the department dean; I've got an appointment with her next week so hopefully I'll soon have this paperwork filed and at least have something official on my record.
