Students need 180 credits for single degrees, including double majors, and 225 credits for double degrees.
It is important to decide whether you would like to follow a double major or degree early in your academic career – preferably, before the middle of your junior year. It is possible that the university will not permit the addition of a double major or degree later in your program.
