Double Majors

When a student officially declares and completes two majors (a double major), the student receives one baccalaureate degree upon graduation. The student must fulfill the graduation requirements of the degree-granting college when specifying B.A. or B.S. or B.E. The University does not officially recognize triple majors.

Students who wish to complete two majors must obtain the approval of the two departments or programs involved. Certain combinations of majors are not permitted. The number of credits taken to fulfill the requirements of both must total at least 60. Students should submit a Major/Minor Declaration Form to add a second major when both majors are in the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, or the School of Journalism. Students must be formally accepted through direct admission or application to majors in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the College of Business, and in the School of Health Technology and Management (except the major in Health Science).

Note 1: For students with majors in both the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Business or the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences or the School of Journalism, the D.E.C. requirements or SBC learning objectives for the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences are required.

Note 2: Health Sciences students interested in pursuing a double major should consult their program directors and refer to the Health Sciences Bulletin.

Double Majors for Students in  College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, Health Sciences Schools, School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, School of Journalism

Double majors may be composed of the following combinations and will result in only one of three degrees (B.E., B.S., or B.A.):

• Any two majors (except Multi­­disci­plinary Studies) within or between the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Business or the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences or the School of Journalism

or

• A major in the College of Engineer­ing and Applied Sciences plus a major in the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Business or the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences or the School of Journalism

or

• A major in the Health Sciences School of Health Technology and Management plus a major in the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Business or the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences or the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences or the School of Journalism

Double Majors for Students in College of Engineering and Applied Sciences

Bachelor of Science Degree

Double majors leading to a Bachelor of Science degree may be composed of either of the following combinations:

• A major in applied mathematics and statistics (AMS) plus a major in computer science (CSE), information systems (ISE), or tech­nological systems management (TSM), or any major in the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, or the School of Journalism

• A major in technological systems management (TSM) plus a major in applied math and statistics (AMS), computer science (CSE), information systems (ISE), or any major in the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, or the School of Journalism

• A major in computer science (CSE), information systems (ISE) plus any major in the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, or the School of Journalism

Note: It is not possible to have a double major consisting of computer science and information systems.

Bachelor of Engineering Degree

For a Bachelor of Engineering, the first major must be an engineering major chosen from the following:

biomedical engineering (BME), chemical and molecular engineering (CME), civil engineering (CIV), computer engineering (ECE), electrical engineering (ESE), mechanical engineering (MEC), or engineering science (ESG)

The second may be any of the following:

applied mathematics and statistics (AMS), computer science (CSE), information systems (ISE), journalism, technological systems management (TSM), or any major in the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Business.

Note: It is not possible to have two engineering majors.
