Dual Majors

If you fulfill all the degree requirements for two curricula you will have completed a dual major, and you will receive one diploma noting both majors.

  • You must designate a first-named and second-named major by filing an Undergraduate Change of Major Form with the Registrar at least one semester prior to graduation. You must have the appropriate department(s) approve this designation prior to filing.

  • You must be assigned an advisor in each department who will monitor your progress in that department.

  • The degree clearance officer in the department must certify that you have met all degree requirements in that department.

Note that the 24 credit hour mathematics/science requirement and the 24 credit hour humanities and social sciences requirement will satisfy the Institute's requirements for both majors.

Please note also that you may start out your first semester at Rensselaer with only one major. Dual majors may be added at the discretion of the department starting after your first semester is complete. Students interested in dual majoring should discuss their plans with their academic adviser when they arrive on campus.

Due to the nature of the program, please note that students enrolled in the Physician-Scientist Program or one of the Accelerated Law Programs are not able to dual or double major.
