BACHELOR OF ARTS
DOUBLE MAJOR

 

The BA with a Double Major degree allows students to combine two majors into one degree to provide depth in two areas of study rather than just one. Students may choose combinations of the disciplines included in the Program of Study Requirements. Following is one suggested four-year degree plan. Students are encouraged to see their advisor each semester for help with program decisions and enrollment.  Students are responsible for reviewing the Program of Study Requirements.

*See Appendix A Core Curriculum and Optional Course Information.

** See Appendix C for approved list of minors and requirements.

This requirement may also be met by earning 6 SCH in any subject while participating in a TAMIU-approved Study Abroad program while living for at least 3 months in a non-English speaking country.
2Math elective, select 3 SCH from any math course above the level of College Algebra.
