Just found out I may have to graduate one semester later than originally planned. It just seems that these speed bumps in my goal to graduate keep coming up and I'm so frustrated.

The issue is with the fact that I have no foreign language. I can get a BS in History with no foreign language but I need it to get a BA in History. I plan to get my Masters in Library Science and my teacher says that it would be better if I had a BA. It would open more career opportunities for me and make me more marketable and I'd have more Master's programs to choose from.

I'm torn about what to do. I know that I should have foreign language just for my own good but I want to graduate!! Three years more of my bachelors just because of these setbacks seems to unbelievable.

I guess I have to try to look at it in the grand scheme of things. Three years VS the rest of my career. I don't know.



How much of a foreign language do you have to take? It seems like a good idea to do the BA and get the foreign language done.


I would have to take four semesters. I'm going to have to seriously weigh the pros and cons about this. It's just so frustrating to have to push things back when I see age 30 around the corner.
