All students design their own educational programs (with faculty advisement), so the equivalent of a "double major" is available. We have a 3-2 program where students can get their B.A. degree and M.S.Ed. in The Art of Teaching or M.A. in Women's History. We also have a 3-2 program in which the student receives a B.A. in the Liberal Arts from Sarah Lawrence and a B.S. in Engineering from Columbia.
