At NU, students declare majors by the end of sophomore year. But even if what you wrote applies to UM, you have to factor the fact that not everyone graduates in four years. So multiplying by two is going to understate the number, perhaps fairly significantly. Regardless, I actually just found the actual numbers for direct comparison (see below).
In 2011, NU conferred 70 degrees in English and 141 degrees in Psychology. So it's more like 4 times (5 for English) instead of 3.
