Majors, Minors, and Certificates

Students in Georgetown College may major, major with a minor, double major, double major with a minor, or major in one field with two minors. A minor is not required. 

Georgetown College students may earn a certificate in a regional study, which are offered through the School of Foreign Service. Certificates are the functional equivalent of minors, so they count as one of the (maximum) three academic components a student may complete toward the degree (i.e., a major plus two other components). There can be no double counting of courses between or among the programs.
