I don't see why not, but you'd have to check the policies of your school.

Then again, my college wouldn't even let me have one minor unless it was in a different college (I was in natural sciences, my minor would have had to be in liberal arts, communication, etc).

Usually you can. At my university, they just stipulate that they must differ by x number of credits. You also have to be careful if you're going to do three related subjects (i.e., biochem, cell bio, biophysics) because you'll probably end up trying to tripe count certain classes, which they probably won't allow. My advice would be just just make sure you have everything on paper, signed, and registered with the administration before you take a bunch of classes. They can change the requirements pretty quickly without informing you, and I know more than a few people that have been screwed because they didn't have everything on paper beforehand.

All degrees conferred depend on the college/university you attend. There are still universities that will allow a "triple" major, while mine only allows a double at most (and then no minors). Others will allow a major/minor combo, major/minor/minor, major/major/minor... well, you get the idea.

Bottom line: ask your advisor who knows a HECK of a lot more about your school than we do. :)

heh, ive got a double major double minor.

schools limit the degrees you can recieve? hmmm... as long as you do the work, without trying to count classes for multiple degrees, i dont see why any school would do that
