Students who choose a double major should begin planning their course of studies by spring of their freshman year to ensure they can meet the requirements of both majors. They must complete an application for a double major, which is available at the School of Arts and Sciences Office, 107 McMahon Hall.

Minors and certificate programs in other disciplines are popular with our majors and, depending on the specific minor, relatively easy to arrange.  Popular minors for politics majors include history, media studies, economics, peace and justice studies, philosophy, Asian studies, Spanish, and French. Certificate programs which fit well with the politics major include intelligence studies, European studies, and Islamic World studies.
