Sometimes students choose to complete a major in Weinberg College and a major in another school as well. Most often, these students have fulfilled the degree requirements for only one of these schools. Since some schools will not permit you to complete their majors if you are not enrolled in their school, you may need to transfer to the other school. While interschool transfer is generally not difficult, it may involve careful consideration of your ability to complete requirements. Be sure to consult with an adviser in the other school, your WCAS Adviser, and the University Academic Advising Center, which specializes in interschool advising.
It is important to understand that if you complete major requirements in two schools, you likely are only completing the degree requirements for one. If, for instance, you want to complete the Theatre major in the School of Communication and a major in Sociology in WCAS, you will first need to interschool transfer into the School of Communication. Then, you will complete all the graduation requirements for the School of Communication, including their distribution requirements and the major, as well as the Sociology major requirements. You will not, however, need to complete the WCAS general education requirements (our freshman seminars, distribution requirements, and foreign language proficiency and writing proficiency requirements).
Because you will not be completing the degree requirements of the College, your degree will come from your new school (and thus you may get a Bachelor of Science degree instead of a Bachelor of Arts). You will, however, have the following entry included on your transcript if you file a petition to graduate for both majors: "Also completed departmental program requirements for a major in ________."
