Our closest match to your question:

Can I take a double major?

Students enrolled in a 4-year Bachelor of Arts program, as either a first or second undergraduate degree, generally have the option to combine two majors into a double major.

Students who take double majors must fulfill all requirements for both majors. Depending upon the chosen majors, this may greatly restrict course selection (particularly in the second undergraduate degree program) or require the completion of more than 120 credits. 

Students considering enrolling in double majors should consult with an Athabasca University Academic Advisor for assistance in selecting their programs and courses.
