or the Daily
Students who can't decide on a single
centration or choose a favorite
ween competing fields of study are
pting to go the extra mile and major in
wo disciplines.
Two options are available for students
nterested in pursuing two different fields
it the University - choose one concen-
ration or enroll in two schools within the
Jniversity. Although the later option
akes longer, some students are willing to
lo the extra-work.
If a student's passion lies in two differ-
schools, a joint or dual degree
>etween schools may be necessary.
[hese often take five years to obtain and

major, but only a handful complete a
joint degree between two schools.
Judge said most student requests for a
dual or joint degree are granted under the
condition that they maintain a 3.0 GPA. It
is possible to get a joint degree between
any of the schools, but some schools,
including the School of Business
Administration, are more difficult.
Wendy Wyte, an LSA academic advis-
er, generally encounters students going
into the health profession such as physi-
cal therapy, nursing or medicine. She
finds many of her students often choose
a foreign language as an area of study in
addition to a science concentration.
"They are looking to get a special pre-
med background but they have an affini-
ty for that lan-
guage," Wyte
magine said.

The Indian America

executive board elections

in an effort to increase vot

"There was a limited nu

ure of myself
ugh to
ursue a career in art - it's not very sta-
le," said LSA first-year student Josh
3and, a computer science concentrator
vho plans to apply to the School of Art
nd Design next year.
Ater speaking with an LSA adviser,
3and discussed his plans with an Art and
)esign adviser and a computer science
idviser in the College of Engineering. He
resented his case to the Academic
adards Board for approval. His plan
approved on the condition that he
omplete the requirements for both con-
entrations and gains admission to the
School of Art and Design.
I want to work for a computer science
company, dealing possibly with 3-D ani-
mation, movies, special effects, multime-
dia;' Band said.
Band acknowledged the vast differ-
ences between the two programs he plans
,pursue.
Computer science is "all logic and
the School of Art (and Design) is cre-
ative, kind of opposite side of the spec-
trum, different sides of the brain," Band
said.
Charles Judge, a member of the LSA
Academic Standards Board, said that 20-
25 percent of LSA students double

adding, "It can be useful because being
fluent in a language is an asset."
Engineering and LSA senior Matt
Niedlinger entered the University as an
industrial and operations engineering
concentrator. After his sophomore year
he decided to study abroad in
Germany.
Niedlinger said it typically takes most
engineering students about four and a
half years to graduate. He estimates it
will take him about five and a half years
to graduate, adding his extra year in
Germany.
Niedlinger said he hopes to unite his
two concentrations after graduation.
Engineering senior Jordan Jonas, who
has a double major within the School of
Engineering said limited course avail-
ability may keep her in school for five
years.
She took an introductory material sci-
ence class and declared a concentration
in that area. Later she had an internship
in mechanical engineering and chose to
major in that field too.
"I was kind of worried I would end up
doing something I didn't like (with one
major)," Jonas said. "When I graduate, it
will open a lot of doors for me."

Candidates file campaign ex

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Assisted suicide advo-
cate Geoffrey Fieger has bankrolled his Democratic
run for governor with a$1 million promissory note,
according to campaign rieports filed yesterday.
Fieger said he's been out making quite a few
speeches to Democratic groups, and plans a serious
campaign.
"Right now, it looks like I have to do it. If(Democratic
candidates) Doug Ross or Larry Owen could beat
(Republican incumbent) John Engler, I wouldn't even
think about running. But I think I'm the only one,"
Fieger said yesterday from his Southfield law office.

Fieger's campaign records show he has not yet
received the $ million. He had raised $1,525 from
other sources by Dec. 31, and spent $123 so far on his
campaign, but said he's still far ahead of Democratic
competitors because he won't have to spend money
getting his name known by the voters.
His work defending Dr. Jack Kevorkian has given him
all the name recognition he needs. "Doug Ross and Lay
Owen could both spend 10 times the money they have
and not have the name recognition that I do," Fieger said.
Even with the loan, Fieger had a way to go to beat
Engler's fund-raising efforts. In his run for a third

$1.3 million and having more than $1.6 million on
hand, not counting state matching funds. His cam-
paign also had a $15,005 debt.
He has qualified to receive $932,272 in state match-

About 20 percent of the governor's contributions, or
$509,873, was in contributions of $100 or less.
Candidates qualify for $2 in state matching funds
