Joint Majors

All adjunct majors require completion of a stand-alone major as well. MMSS students must complete a major in a social science or other approved area. See the Mathematics Second Major or Minor for MMSS Students for information about the major or the minor in mathematics when combined with the MMSS adjunct major; see the program website and relevant sections of this Catalog for information on adjustments to requirements in other majors or minors for students in MMSS:

Triple majors

Students wishing to pursue two joint majors with MMSS (i.e. to pursue a triple major) are NOT allowed to double count MMSS courses towards both of their other majors, i.e., MMSS students may only apply the double counting rules to ONE major. In special cases, permission may be given to count some MMSS courses as fulfilling the requirements of two other majors. However, explicit permission must be obtained from the Director of MMSS and from the Directors of Undergraduate Studies of BOTH of the other departments.

Honors in MMSS

All MMSS students write a senior thesis in MMSS, in another major, or in both. Students should enroll in two units of the MMSS senior seminar. Students must enroll in MMSS 398-1 Senior Seminar, and at least MMSS 398-2 or MMSS 398-3. Students who write an MMSS thesis of sufficiently high quality, and earn sufficiently high grades may be recommended to the college for graduation with honors in MMSS. For more information consult the program director and see Honors in the Major.
