Double Major Requirement

Our double major requirement permits and even encourages flexibility after college as our students build a career that they truly enjoy and find fulfilling. If for some reason, once our students get out into the workforce utilizing the skills developed in one major and find that they don’t like it as much as they thought they would, our double major allows for some flexibility and the ability to change their course.
