Double Majors & Minors

Students wishing to obtain a minor or a second major in another program or department are required to meet the guidelines set by that program or department. Courses for a minor or second major can be drawn from a student's open electives, allied fields, Liberal Studies requirements, or their primary major. Note that in some cases, a double major may require more credit hours to complete than the ordinary minimum number needed for graduation. A C- grade or better is required in all courses taken for any major or minor. For information about how to declare an Islamic World Studies Major or Minor via Campus Connect, please review the LAS Declaration of Major, Minor & Concentration page.
