LALS Combined Majors

Combined Majors

Students can pursue the LALS combined major with either Politics or Sociology.

Both departments must approve a study plan before the combined major will be declared. Major and thesis honors are determined separately and granted only when both departments concur. Students interested in pursuing a combined major should see instructions on how to declare a combined major on our major declaration page. 

The LALS department provides the combined major worksheets as a guide for students:

Politics - Worksheet (admitted Fall 2017 or after)

Sociology - Worksheet (admitted Fall 2016 or after)

*** If you declared the major previous to Fall 2015, please see your advisors to make sure you are following the right requirements.


Double Majors

LALS welcomes students wishing to pursue a double major. Double majors must meet the requirements of both the LALS major and the second major.
