If you decide to dual-major (in other words, add another program of study to your current one), there will be some classes that you will need to add to your current program of study (or "major").  You will need to discuss this plan with your advisor - and gain their approval before adding an additional Program.  There will be some additional elements that you will need to complete: [This process is currently under revision]

When considering dual-majoring, PLEASE consult with your advisor for approval.  Not everyone may be permitted to dual-major.  There are also schedule variations (course offerings) and course sequencing that can impact how quickly you progress through the Program.   Other options (e.g., pursuing LCAS or Grief Counseling certificate) are not part of the dual-majoring process.  Courses taken towards other options may not be substituted for the ones indicated above.

Once approved to dual-major by your advisor, please request that the second (new) portfolio structure be added to your Foliotek account.  Send this request to Dr. Royal (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).  Please indicate what your current (existing) and second (new) majors are.  There are no additional Foliotek fees required to add another portfolio structure.
