Doubling Down with a Double Major

Diverse study areas at UO lead to interesting "mash-ups" ...

Shahnaz Mooney is a “double major”—i.e., working toward a degree in two fields of study. All told, 1,900 UO students have declared two or more majors. Some of the combinations are not too surprising—Spanish and ethnic studies, for instance, or medieval studies and history—but consider these very individualized approaches to doubling down:

  • Anthropology and cinema studies
  • Music and psychology
  • Chinese and biology
  • Computer and information science and theater arts
  • Mathematics and Japanese
  • Religious studies and environmental studies
