The requirements for work at the University of Northern Iowa, 200-level work, and all other specific requirements shall be met for the second major, in addition to work completed for the first major. Common research project/thesis and comprehensives are permissible. For students completing one thesis for two majors, course work common to both majors would include six (6) hours of XXX:299 research and two (2) additional hours.
