Information for students with more than one major

Keep in mind that you will only have time to attend one area meeting.  Because some majors require specific course sequencing for timely graduation, students with multiple majors should chose the area meeting based on the following priority list. For example, if you are double-majoring in Art and Biology, based on the list below, you would go to the Art area meeting. If possible, send a family member or friend to the area meeting for your second major. After the area meetings, you may go to other area meeting rooms to speak to advisors and pick up information packets.

Once classes begin, Franklin College advising offers walk-in hours every weekday afternoon if you have questions about your second major.

Area Meeting 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)**
  3. BS (Biological)
  4. BS (Physical/Computational)
  5. AB majors and BS Psychology
