Double Majors and Double Degrees

The Departments of African American Studies, Anthropology, Hearing and Speech Sciences and Sociology will admit students as double majors on a case by case basis. First semester freshmen are exempt from the 3.3 grade point average requirement through the last day of classes of their first semester at the University of Maryland.

The university encourages students to complete their degrees in four years or 130 credits. Students wishing to declare a second major or degree will need to complete a plan that demonstrates their ability to successfully complete the major requirements in eight (8) semesters (four years).

Any student who will go over eight (8) semesters in completing their degree must appeal through their department and College for permission to add the second major/degree.

Exceptions may be considered on a case by case basis at the department or College level.
