What is a double major?

A double major is a course of study that contains two equal areas of interest, such as philosophy and political science. Both majors must lead to the same degree, such as B.A. or B.S. A student cannot double major, for instance, in English (for which only a B.A. is possible) and Computer Science (for which only a B.S. is possible). Students with a double major do not generally have a minor. See http://www.uh.edu/academics/catalog/general/acade3.html#double.
