For students wishing to add Econ as a Second Major: 

Second majors are rare and must be approved by the FHSS Advisement Center supervisors. The second major proposal and approval process requires an evaluation of all University Core and major requirements and a time-to-graduation analysis. Petitions for a double major must be submitted prior to earning 90 BYU credit hours (excluding language exam credits).

The FHSS Advisement Center is prepared to assist interested students in this process.  Courses used to complete the requirements of a student's major can also be used to complete the requirements of an approved second major, unless not permitted by the requirements of the proposed second major.​ Students who graduate with a second major only receive one degree (the one associated with the primary major) and one diploma.  Only the primary major will be listed in the university commencement program and on the diploma.  (University Catalog, Graduation, "Double Major".) ​​​
