Combined Majors

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

To see the description of any of them, please see the UCSC General Catalog (scroll down to see information on combined majors).

By pursuing any of the combined majors, students will be working with two departments, each taking care of their own "side" of the combined major.

Both departments must approve a study plan before the combined major can 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 F17 on)

Sociology - Worksheet (admitted F16 on)

*** If you declared the major previous to Fall15 please refer to the old combined worksheets and requirements and see your advisors to make sure you are following the right requirement.

Double Major

The Latin American and Latino Studies Department welcomes students wishing to pursue a double major. Double majors must meet the requirements of both the LALS major and the second major.
