Double Majoring

Student reading in the law libraryWhat is a double major?

Many schools offer the chance to major in more than one subject. Some even give you the chance to earn two separate degrees. Again, rules vary from school to school on how you can pull this off. At Northern Michigan University, students can choose to double major (such as business and theater) but will get a single degree (Bachelors of Arts or Bachelors of Science). Although students can generally finish a degree at NMU in four years, double majors may require more time. Pursuing a double major is an effective way to get more out of college and improve your chances of future success, but it can take a lot of effort and dedication. It helps to know ahead of time what type of workload you'll be expected to handle.
