Many students major in two separate fields, often quite dissimilar, for instance, Theater and Government. To do so, the student must obtain agreement of the two departments (or programs, or one of each) and file with the Registrar a form signed by both Chairs. The culminating experience must be satisfied for both majors.
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 prerequisite to the other, or prerequisite to both majors). Very often a student starts with one major and later adds, through appropriate filing, a second. Either or both of the majors may be Standards, Modified, or Special.
The student may at any time decide 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.
