Co-Majors & Minors

Co-Majors with Economics

Co-major programs at the master’s level can be arranged with other departments. A co-major degree results in one degree that encompasses both fields. Students wishing to do a co-major degree should consult with their current Director of Graduate Programs. Requests to the co-major department should be made early in the student's program to allow for planning course work and advising from both departments. 

Only those students pursuing a thesis-based master’s degree are permitted to co-major.  The student’s advisory committee must include co-chairs from each of the two majors plus one additional member from either major.
