Double Majoring in Course XIV
Students may combine a 14-1 major with a major in any other department. In order to receive two majors, students must complete the 17 GIR's and the departmental requirements for both majors. Some double-major combinations are more popular than others. Course 14-1 double majors with 6, 18, and 15 are especially popular.
Single majors may count three of their economics subjects toward the eight-subject HASS requirement; double majors may count up to six of their economics subjects toward the HASS requirement.
14-2 majors may not have a dual major in Mathematics. 14-2 single majors may count three of their economics subjects toward the eight-subject HASS requirement; 14-2 double majors may count up to six of their economics subjects toward the HASS requirement, provided that 14-2 is the second major.
Guidelines and Administrative Procedures for Obtaining a Second Major
Students with a cumulative GPA ("Cum") of 4.0 or higher after completing at least one semester in one major may petition the Committee on Curriculum (CoC) to pursue a second major. The petition must be submitted to the CoC no later than Add Date of the term prior to the term in which the student intends to receive the S.B. degree.
Blank forms for second-major petitions, with instructions, are available for downloading and printing from the CoC's web site at: http://web.mit.edu/registrar/forms/index.html.
