Thesis options for double majors

Students often inquire how they can complete the thesis requirements for their double major. Students have a variety of options.

Students may complete two distinct theses, one for each major. The theses are distinct from one another and may each independently be one or two semesters in length. For each semester of each thesis in each major discipline the student registers for fall thesis (457) and/or winter thesis (458).

Another option is to complete one two-semester interdisciplinary thesis to
complete the requirements for both fields of the double major. Students register for fall thesis (457) in under one department/program and winter thesis (458) under the other department/program. See the memo from the Educational Policy Committee regarding this topic.
