Some of the majors offered by Weinberg College are adjunct majors. If you complete an adjunct major, then you must complete another major too. This second major must be a "stand-alone" major; that is, every student must have at least one major that is not an adjunct major.
The adjunct majors offered by Weinberg College are:
- African Studies
- International Studies
- Mathematical Methods in the Social Sciences
- Science in Human Culture
Mathematical Methods in the Social Sciences (MMSS) is also a special admission major.
Students entering Northwestern prior to Fall 2016 could also pursue an adjunct major in Legal Studies. This adjunct major was replaced by a stand-alone major not requiring the completion of another major too.If you do an adjunct major, be sure to discuss the choice of your second major with a Weinberg or major adviser. Some adjunct majors mesh particularly well with other majors (MMSS and Economics, for instance). Some adjunct majors also have more liberal double-counting rules. Back to top
