Double Majors

Students who wish to explore a second academic program in depth, may petition to declare a double major. Double majors must be outside of the student’s current academic department (or school), and are available to students who are in good academic standing (UC cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better) at the time of application. Find out if double majoring is right for you. Come in to speak with an academic counselor today to review a possible double major and the petitioning process. Double majors must be completed in twelve quarters for students entering as Freshmen and in six quarters for students entering as Transfers.
