Organization, Regulations, and Courses 2022-23

Multiple Majors

Many students major in two or more separate fields, often quite dissimilar, for instance, Theater and Government. To do so, the student must submit separate major plans to each department or program, approved by all Chairs. Multiple majors may not be within the same department or program except when a department/program offers separate and dissimilar majors. * (Astronomy and Physics, French and Italian, and Spanish and Portuguese).  The culminating experience must be satisfied for all majors. In designing the multiple major program, it is not possible to use any individual course as part of more than a single major (although a course may be part of one major and prerequisite to the other, or prerequisite to each major). A student may start with one major and later add, through appropriate submission, a second or third. Any of the majors may be Standard, Modified, or Special. The student may at any time decide to return to a single major by officially dropping one or more of the majors. See the Registrar's website for detailed instructions on procedures. The regulation concerning the deadline for making a change of major (or type of major) is not intended to keep a student who has been carrying a multiple major from dropping one or more majors in the last days of the term preceding graduation.

*NOTE:  Invalid major combinations are not approved within the same department/program and departments and programs should take care when advising to identify any conflicting majors.
