Major: The student’s field of concentration. Major courses represent 25-50% of the total number of courses required to complete a degree. Most students pursue one major, but some pursue double majors. (EducationUSA, 2019)

Dual Degree Programs: Also referred to as ‘Double Degrees’, involves working on two university degrees simultaneously and completing both degrees in less time than it would have taken to earn them separately. The two degrees could be in the same subject area or in two different subjects. (Wikipedia, 2019)

Minor: The student’s secondary field of concentration. Students who decide to pursue a minor will usually complete about five courses in this second field of study.  (EducationUSA, 2019)
