<p>can core requirements and requirements for your major overlap?</p>

<p>like say i’m a spanish major, and a school requires one to take a language, does it count for both?</p>

<p>and if this is possible is it just in certain colleges or all colleges?</p>

<p>It's generally true, with the caveat that some classes might only work for one. As an example, if you're in COM, you have general distribution requirements and you can take a class to meet both those reqs and for a minor. Some intro or lower level classes won't count for a major, but that's something you check at the time.</p>
