I need help answering this USC short-response: Describe your academic interests and how you plan on pursuing them at USC.

I like English and history and I plan on majoring in real estate development. I tried writing something but I'm stuck.

First, do you think that your interests in history or English would lead you to join an academic club on campus or even take on a minor?  If so, then that would be an excellent response to discuss in more detail.  This would show your plans to pursue your academic interests as a USC student.  If you do want to focus on history/English, then you would also want to include some background information.  Do you study history in your spare time?  Volunteer at a history museum?  Do you write for the school newspaper?  These types of things would establish evidence that you are pursuing your academic interests currently.

 

You also mentioned real estate as your major.  If you consider real estate to be something that you are currently interested in (maybe you keep up with the real estate market, have studied how appraisals work, etc.), then you would also want to mention this as an academic interest.  Your plan on pursuing this interest at USC would be obvious in that you will be studying it in school.
