fulfilled requirements
Many people pursuing a minor find out have almost done a
combined major—with a bit of planning, could complete it

discipline. Common combinations include: Sociology,
English, Cultural Studies, Global Studies,
Communication Studies.

two minors on top of the combined major (approved
