Benefits of Double Majoring
Our undergraduate programs emphasize interdisciplinary study and are extremely compatible with completing a double major. Bringing this interdisciplinary perspective into a second major gives students a rich and robust educational experience, as well as the opportunity to connect with students and professors in different disciplines.
Adding a second major can help students stand out to future employers and graduate programs.
Double Major Options
MENAS & Arabic
Students become proficient in Arabic while also gaining cultural competency and deeper knowledge of Middle Eastern & North African Studies. Double majoring in MENAS and Arabic can open career options in government and intelligence fields, international business, and non-profits, as well as graduate programs.

Shared Course Policies
The Middle Eastern & North African Studies major allows for 12 units of sharing with any other major that allows sharing of coursework. We have put together special arrangements with certain departments with a large number of cross-listed courses between our departments as well.
The Arabic major allows 6 units of double-dipping with any other major if double dipping is allowed by that major. Courses outside of the "Electives in English" requirement list must be approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies and the advisor. The Arabic major allows 9 units of double dipping with the MENAS major.
See double-dipping policies for other majors at the University of Arizona.
