With careful planning, Psychological & Brain Sciences (PBS) students can complete the requirements for a double major or minor while working towards their degree. Students pursuing the Psychology B.A. can easily add a double major or minor. The B.A. degree has fewer unit requirements than the Biopsychology B.S.—Biopsychology students will need to meticulously plan their time at UCSB to add on an additional major or minor.
For a List of UCSB Majors, visit UCSB General Catalog Acadmic Directory. The Double Major “Memo of Understanding” form is listed as a PDF to the right. This form must be completed and turned into the home department of the secondary major.
