Double Majors

Students with interest and talent in two separate major fields may propose completion of a double major. In their proposal, they must estimate the number of units they will need to complete in satisfying degree requirements and the term in which they will become eligible to graduate. In general, double majors are approved for students who demonstrate that they can meet all degree requirements without exceeding 200 units of credit from all institutions attended. Students who receive approval for a double major will be allowed to continue their studies at UCSB only through the final quarter listed on their proposal. No more than 8 units may be applied simultaneously to the upper-division requirements of the two majors. A student may not pursue two majors offered within a single department, with the exception of Theater and Dance, French and Italian, German and Slavic Languages & Literatures, Spanish and Portuguese, and Chinese and Japanese within East Asian Languages & Cultural Studies.
