So you want to hybridize your field of study, but your choice of a joint major isn’t offered. We’ll work with you to combine two distinct majors within the College of Engineering to create your own unique major.
The following criteria are required for a double major in engineering:
- You were admitted as a freshman to the College of Engineering.
- You have completed at least two semesters at UC Berkeley.
- You must be in good academic standing.
- No more than five upper division technical courses can overlap between the two majors.
- A minimum of five distinct (not overlapped) upper division courses must be completed for each major.
- A minimum UC GPA of 3.0 is needed to be considered for the double major. However, some majors require a higher GPA and some majors require a minimum technical GPA as well.
- Some majors also require a minimum number of prerequisite courses to be completed prior to admission. Consult with your Engineering Student Services adviser about specific course requirements.
- If a ninth semester is required to complete the double major, the request must be made at the time of application. Requests for this additional semester are generally approved; consult with your Engineering Student Services adviser.
- You must submit your double major application by the end of your sixth semester of enrollment.
If you’d like to pursue a double major, discuss your plans and submit your double major application to your Engineering Student Services Adviser.
