Double Majoring in History
The critical thinking, reading, and writing skills gained from a History major are an excellent complement to other majors. Consult with your advisor. Depending on your primary major’s credit requirements and with careful planning, you could obtain a second major in History in the same amount of time it takes to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in another program or department.
The Sample Four Year Academic Plans of various majors can give you a general sense of how many core and elective courses can count towards a second major.
The programs below are just a few examples of candidates for a double major in History:
- American Studies
- Art & Art History
- Information and Computer Sciences (BA)
- Mathematics (BA)
- Psychology (BA)
- Second Language Studies
…and many more!
If you are interested in adding a second major in History, you will complete the Multiple Major Application Form, which is available on the CALL Advising Center form page. Please note that this form requires approval and signature from your current major department, and the History Advisor.
If you are already a History major, and would like to add a second major in another field, please consult with the advising center of that particular college/school. If you are declaring a second major in the College of Arts, Languages & Letters (CALL), your advising center remains the same.
