Double majors in the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS)
second major is also in the College of Arts and Sciences, it is
relatively simple to double major because the CAS
requirements apply to
both majors. However, some majors require many credits so you'll need to plan early.
Double majors in other Colleges at UD
Although it is
possible to double major with majors such as Education, Business,
or Human Services, it may be very difficult or require additional time. These majors are in
other UD Colleges (e.g., Human Services is in the College of Education and Human Development). This situation is a bit more
complicated because each College has its own graduation
requirements, and they do not always overlap. For this reason, students
interested in both majors sometimes choose to minor in one.
Making your courses count
If you plan to double major or do more than one minor, get advisement from the multiple departments sooner rather than later! The advisors can help you find courses that count for several
programs. For example, if your other major is Criminal Justice (CJ), you can
take PSYC100 to fulfill a College Group C Breadth requirement, a PSYC requirement, and a CJ
requirement. The CJ major may even accept PSYC209 in place of SOCI301.
You will have an easier time combining majors if you choose classes that
fulfill both a breadth requirement and a major or minor requirement. Keep
in mind, too, that you should try to take your Second Writing
and Multicultural requirement courses in your major
department – another way of making a course do double duty.
A double degree refers to a double major where one major leads to the B.A. and the other major leads to a B.S. degree. You must complete the requirements for both degrees.
