  • Double Majors Made Easier

    Most Canfield BHP students combine their Business Honors major with another major. You can easily add a second business major after your freshman year with us. If you want to add a major outside McCombs, our advisors will be happy to talk you through the process. Please note that to combine honors degree programs, you may need to apply as an incoming freshman.

Explore Common Double Majors

With Canfield BHP as a baseline major, your options remain flexible. Below are just a few of the more common options students select.

Another Business Major

This is the most common option our students choose. If you’re business through and through, dive in and study a specific business discipline. You can’t go wrong with what you pick, as no other business school has more top-10-ranked majors.

If you’re interested, look over a sample double major course sequence below.

Computer Science

This option is great for students who are savvy in both business and technology. We partnered with the Department of Computer Science to create an integrated dual-degree program that streamlines computer science and business curriculum, so you can complete both majors in less time.

If you’re interested, look over a sample double major course sequence below.

Liberal Arts

This option is perfect for students with diverse interests who would like to add rigorous liberal arts and science classes. This combination will strengthen critical and analytical skills, broaden problem-solving capabilities and writing skills. A capstone thesis is required for Plan II students.

If you’re interested, look over a sample double major course sequence below.

Texas ECB

For students aspiring to be electrical and computing engineers and entrepreneurs, the Honors Electrical and Computer Engineering and Business (Texas ECB) degree provides hands-on and project-based learning. At Texas ECB, students will learn the leadership skills required to lead engineering companies into the future and prepare them to find solutions to the global challenges facing our society. Students interested in combining the technical skills of electrical and computer engineering with business analytics and product management are encouraged to apply. Students will begin honors-level courses in their first semester, gaining a strong foundation in both business and engineering right from the start of their experience in the program.

Pre-Med

This combination works well for students wanting to complete health professions prerequisites, including courses for admission to Medical, Dental, or Physician Assistant school. The Pre-Health Professions Certificate requires 18 hours of coursework and provides a solid foundation for students interested in pursuing a career in the health professions.

If you’re interested, look over a sample double major course sequence below.

Pre-Law

The American Bar Association does not recommend any particular undergraduate major or specified coursework to prepare for legal education. Still, students may choose to pursue a major in a subject area recommended by law schools, such as Government, Philosophy, or Psychology.

Another option would be taking interdisciplinary coursework through certificates such as Business & Public Policy (BPP) or Ethics & Leadership. Because Canfield BHP courses stimulate analytical thinking, our graduates have a strong record of success in being admitted to top law schools.
