Important Information for Students with Double Majors:

To ensure you are advised for the correct major at Orientation:

  • You will only have time for one advising appointment at Orientation.  However, your advisor will be able to answer questions about other Franklin College and UGA majors.
  • The day prior to your orientation session you will receive an email from Kellee Green ( which will list the major for which you will primarily be advised.
  • If you would rather be advised for your other major, please respond to the email by the end of the day. 
  • See the priority list below to determine which major is more critical for advisement at Orientation.

Some majors require specific course sequencing for timely graduation. Students pursuing multiple majors should be advised for and attend the area meeting based on the following priority list. For example, if you plan to pursue both Biology and Psychology, based on the list below, you would go to the BS Biological area meeting. If possible, send a family member or friend to the area meeting for the second major you plan to declare.

Priority List for Double-Majors 

  1. Fine Arts (Art, Music, and Dance)
  2. BBA Intended Business or ABJ Intended Journalism (Advised by the Exploratory Center)**
