Chemistry majors can use the Chemistry electives to fulfill a minor requirement in another department. They can also take a dual major by using the electives in one department to take the required courses in the other. This is difficult with Engineering departments but less so with other Science or H&SS departments. Because a dual major program involves a heavy load of challenging courses, students should not choose this option without careful consideration. In some cases, required courses are sufficiently similar that a particular requirement can be waived with the approval of the Undergraduate Program Coordinator.

Some examples of dual majors include Chemistry and Physics, Chemistry and Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics, Chemistry and Computer Science, Chemistry and Philosophy, and Chemistry and Economics.
