Planning Your Dual Major
In designing the dual major program, it is not possible to use any individual course as part of both majors (although a course may be part of one major and a prerequisite to the other, or a prerequisite to both majors). Very often, a student starts with one major and later adds a second through appropriate filing. Either or both of the majors may be standard majors, modified majors, or special majors.
A student may decide at any time to return to a single major. Note that the regulation concerning the deadline for making a change of major (or type of major) is not intended to keep a student who has been carrying a dual major from dropping one major in the last days of the term preceding graduation.
