Joint Major Program

A joint major is a combination of two program areas. Students complete at least 20 upper division units in each of the two joint major program areas. Students are advised to check individual department listings for possible additional requirements.

Requirements in addition to those listed under the Bachelor of Arts Degree:

  • lower division requirements for both joint major programs
  • at least 20 upper division units in each of the two joint major programs, of which at least 10 upper division units must be completed at SFU in each program area
  • no more than 15 upper division units transferred from another institution may be used toward this program

Note: Students choosing to complete two separate majors (double major) will complete two major programs, with at least one major subject in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Therefore, students will complete at least 30 units of upper division courses in each of the two major subjects. Students completing two majors will graduate with one BA degree.
