Special and Double Majors

Special Major

Designed by the student. If English is the central department, you must fulfill most of the regular requirements and have a minimum of 5 English Department credits as part of the special major. At least one of the 5 credits must be a pre-1830 course and one a post-1830 course.

Students must consult with the various departments or programs involved in the special major and have all approve the plan of study. Only one integrative comprehensive exercise is required.

Students may now also do a special Honors major with four related preparations in different departments.

Double Major

Students may with the department's permission pursue a double major either as part of the Course or Honors program. Double majors must fulfill all the major requirements in both departments.

For a double major in Honors, one of the majors is used as the Honors major and the other is often used as the Honors minor. See the Chair for further details.
