Combined Majors with Politics and Sociology

Combined Majors

LALS combined majors with politics and sociology provide many of the advantages of a double major with far fewer courses required (9-10 upper-division courses for combo majors vs. 16 minimum for a double major).

Both departments must approve a study plan before the combined major will be declared. Honors in the major are 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.

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