Double Majors in Political Science

Double majors have become incredibly popular among Political Science students, who must complete either a minor or a second major as part of their degree requirements. In many cases, you can complete the second major for no, or just a few, additional courses if you’ve planned carefully. There’s more opportunity to count courses between two majors than between a major and a minor, which makes this possible. Please see your Political Science advisor to discuss potential double-majors and how it might impact your progress.
