Double Major Agreements

Double Major Agreements

TCNJ allows up to three courses to count between majors for students who elect to double major.  These courses can be crosslisted, or courses the departments have agreed upon.  The History Department has drawn agreements with several other departments to enhance a student’s ability to double major.

Important Notes:

  • These agreements only apply to students who are double majors in the two listed programs. Single majors cannot apply these courses to their respective majors.
  • This list is not a substitute for meeting with your advisor.
  • Topics courses can sometimes be double counted by permission of the other department’s chair.\
