What is a simultaneous major?

An undergraduate may pursue two majors simultaneously.  The two majors may lead either to a single degree or to two degrees. For example, a student who majors simultaneously in history and government is awarded a single Bachelor of Arts degree; a student who majors simultaneously in journalism and government receives the Bachelor of Journalism and the Bachelor of Arts. 
To declare a simultaneous major in Liberal Arts, go to the Student Division in the Gebauer Building, room 2.200 or complete the steps at the Official Declaration of Major and Minor page. For more information on simultaneous majors, go back to the FAQ and review the Simultaneous Major section of Q&A.
