Students who wish to enhance their education with a secondary or complementary area of study may broaden their program of study by adding a second degree, double major or a minor.
Following are the main differences between a double degree or a double major option.
Students who wish to pursue a double major in two different colleges (i.e. Albers School of Business and Economics and Arts and Sciences) would likely benefit from declaring a double degree in lieu of a double major due to the fact that they will likely meet the 225 credits given the variation across colleges.
MRC STUDENTS: Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities may not select the double major option; they must select the double degree option and will be required to complete 180 credits for both degrees, not 225 credits.
