Students who wish to expand their educational opportunities may decide to declare a dual major. The decision may be based on career goals or planned graduate studies. Before a student declares a dual major it is important to meet with the appropriate academic departments for advisement. Some dual major combinations can be completed within the minimum 120 credit hour degree requirement, but in some cases, additional coursework may be required. In order to declare a dual major, the student must complete the appropriate dual major request form and get the signatures of each department chairperson and the appropriate associate dean.
Dual majors in Physics and Computer Science, or Physics and Mathematics are common and offer interesting career options.
