So, you have explored your options and are ready to officially declare your major. Congratulations! Below are the steps for declaring a major, minor, or dual degree (different from a double major).
Student are expected to declare a major by the beginning of their fourth semester. You can also easily drop a previously declared major or minor, using the same form. You do not need a faculty signature to drop a major or minor.
Students pursuing a double major earn one degree--B.A., B.F.A, B.S., B.S.M, etc.--while pursuing two major areas of academic study. Students will be asked to choose a primary major and a secondary major, and they will follow the school-specific core requirements for their primary major. Most undergraduate degrees require 120 credit hours. Students receive one diploma.
Newcomb-Tulane College students pursuing dual degrees earn two different degrees (and are awarded two separate diplomas). Students earning dual degrees within two schools must complete the Newcomb-Tulane College core curriculum, each school’s specific core curriculum, and the major requirements for each degree and earn at least 150 credits.
