Double Major in CC

<p>Guys, I want to double major Econ + (history or philosophy or humanities)</p>

<p>1.
First of all, is it systemically possible for CC student prepare for double major at CC and </p>

<p>finish at 4-year college?</p>

<p>2.
Since I can only transfer 70 units from CC, and the 2 majors listed above are not really </p>

<p>relvent each other, would it take 1 more extra year for me to graduate? </p>

<p>I don't know if assist.org gives information about double major.. couldn't find it.</p>

<p>P.S (skip it :D)
I actually wanted to double major in humanities as a bookwarm, but I am an international</p>

<p>student that have less job chances in USA especially with non-practical degrees and my</p>

<p>home country also hates humanity kind of students, she likes more practical degrees.</p>

<p>Anyway, it is good I was quite much interested in Econ at least, one of the most popular </p>

<p>major in ma country, haha.</p>

<p>I am going to double major when I transfer to UCSD in econ and political science. At my CC I finished all of my prereqs for both the econ and poli sci major at UCSD (both found on assist). I received my AA for both majors. I was accepted to UCSD as an econ major but I could have applied as a poli sci major. After I finish my first quarter I will petition to add the poli sci major, making me a double major. I am transferring with 67 units from my CC to UCSD and that included everything to be IGETC certified and having all the of prereqs done. </p>

<p>It will take me 3 years at UCSD to finish both majors since I do need so many classes. You should be able to find information about double majoring on whatever UC you are trying to transfer to.</p>

<p>Hopefully this helps.</p>

<p>Really Tnx for your advice!</p>

<p>so, I can't apply as a double-major student? </p>

<p>Is the step like this?</p>

<p>1 Finish prerequs for both econ and one chosen humanity and get AA for both.</p>

<ol>
<li><p>But apply as either econ or humanites student, not double major.</p></li>
<li><p>And petition that I want to double major.</p></li>
<li><p>If accepted, Study one more year to get both degree</p></li>
<li><p>Done!</p></li>
</ol>

<p>more like..</p>

<p>Finish Prereqs for both major (you dont really need to get your AA if you dont want to, this isn't a requirement to transfer)</p>

<p>Apply as either major</p>

<p>Get accepted</p>

<p>Start attending</p>

<p>Petition to double major</p>

<p>Study one more year to finish all upper div requirement for both majors</p>

<p>But this is how it is for UCSD, make sure you check the individual websites for whatever college you are wishing to attend.</p>

<p>Econ. doesn't look like a particularly unit-heavy major <a href="http://economics.ucsd.edu/ugrad/ugradPDFs/econmajor_2yrplan_postF09.pdf%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://economics.ucsd.edu/ugrad/ugradPDFs/econmajor_2yrplan_postF09.pdf&lt;/a>. I think you can double major in econ and a humanities major without staying an extra year in university but that depends on how many prerequisites you've done, a bit of luck, and how big of a workload you can handle.</p>
