BACHELOR OF ARTS
DOUBLE MAJOR

The BA with a Double Major degree allows students to combine two majors into one degree to provide depth in two areas of study rather than just one. Students may choose combinations of the disciplines included in the Program of Study Requirements. Following is a suggested four-year degree plan. Students are encouraged to see their advisor each semester for help with program decisions and enrollment; responsible for reviewing the Program of Study Requirements; and must meet foreign language and writing intensive course requirements for graduation. See Academic Regulations-Undergraduate.
