Double Majors

A student electing a double major must meet all requirements for both majors. Courses, including cognates, elected as part of one major may be used, when appropriate, to satisfy the requirements of the second major. Courses from one of the majors may be used toward distribution. Each plan for the major must be developed in consultation with and approved by a department advisor.

Second Major after Graduation

Students may complete a second major any time after graduation by registering as a non-degree candidate through the Office of Admissions. Once the requirements for the major are complete, their department advisor must submit an online major/minor release form to the academic auditors so the second major can be added to the student's transcript. Students may not add, complete, or declare a minor after graduation. Students are, however, permitted to use the credits earned towards a minor in the completion of an additional major after graduation. Upon completion of this additional major, the minor will be removed from the student’s transcript and be replaced by the major. Students also may not change their degree (e.g., A.B. to B.S.) after graduation.
