Double Majors, Minors, and Other FAQ

Double majors

 
Is it possible to be a double major?

Yes; in fact, some students within the Department of Anthropology, Gender Studies and International Studies decide to double major in another department such as Black Studies, Sociology or Political Science. Please note that only a minor in Woman and Gender Studies is offered at this time.

 
I'd like to double major. How do I go about doing that?

If you are considering pursuing a double major, be sure to speak with an advisor in your major (Anthropology and International Studies, respectively) as well an advisor in the second department or program so that you understand all the requirements. Be please aware that a maximum of two classes can count toward both majors. To declare your major, please use the iDeclare website.
