Double Majors

Double Majors

At the University of Arizona it is possible to combine two majors as part of a single Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree. As an miltidisciplinary endeavor, American Indian Studies encourages student to think of this option. AIS allows students to use up to 9 units (3 courses) towards a second major, pending approval from the second major department. Students who chose to double major (complete two B.A. degrees) do not need a minor. The AIS core course requirements remain the same for the AIS major when it is combined with a second major.

AIS is in process of developing course paths to assist students who would like to pursue this option. At the moment one has been developed:

  • B.A. in Law (max 12 units of double dipping)

Expect more soon.

Remember, if you already are minoring in AIS, you can easily change to an AIS major. Contact the AIS Advisor Christopher Cruz,
