How About a Double Major?

You have many choices! Often, a double major makes students more competitive in seeking jobs or in pursuing graduate programs. Other options are majors with double minors, or majors with minors, or majors with certificates. Please come see one of our program chairs listed above to discuss any of these options, or contact the Public & Environmental Affairs Unit Chair, Alise Coen -

Consider Pre-Law

Instead of designating a specific pre-law major or minor, we encourage you to tailor your own pre-professional courses of study. A major in Public Administration, Environmental Policy and Planning, Sociology & Anthropology, or Political Science is particularly suited to preparatory work for Law School.
