Majors and Degrees

The College of Liberal Arts offers a wide variety of majors.


Declaring a major

  • For current Liberal Arts Students: You must meet with the department's academic advisor to declare a major.
  • For University of Texas at Austin students currently enrolled in another college: You must complete a college change form in the Dean's office and meet with the department's academic advisor.
  • The College expects students to have a declared major by the time they have completed 60 credit hours.

Double Major vs. Dual Degree

A double major means that you have two majors that are the same degree, for example a Bachelor of Arts in both English and French.  When you complete degree requirements, you will receive only one diploma.  To add a second major in Liberal Arts, follow the process for declaring a major.  A dual degree (sometimes called a simultaneous major) means that you are pursuing two different degrees, for example a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and a Bachelor of Science in chemistry.  You may have dual degrees from different colleges, but you mush be admitted by both colleges.  Adding a dual degree from another college becomes official during the first eight days of a semester.
