Double Major
I've seen a lot of people talking about double majoring. I was just wondering what exactly a double major is, how you do it, and do you have to double major in one faculty? for example could you get a double major, one in social science and one in science? Also, Is the BA/BSW program considered to already be a double major, or could you do the BA/BSW AND get another major in something else? thanks!

A double major is what you think it is -- having two majors.

To do it, you need to take the degree requirements from both majors. It can be done in two soc sci disiplines, two humanities disciplines, or one of each. You can't do it with most science programs because there are a lot of degree requirements you must have.

BSW can be a combined Honours (ie double major) program if you wish.

McMaster Honours English with a minor in Indigenous Studies: 2010
Carleton University Masters of Arts in Canadian Studies: 2012 (expected)
