Double Major Programs
Department of Economics Double Major Programs
The Department of Economics offers double major programs in History, Management, Mathematics, Philosophy, Political Science and International Relations, Psychology, and Sociology. Students who satisfy the relevant requirements can apply to enroll in these programs. Students accepted to these programs receive separate diplomas from the two departments upon successful completion of requirements. General information on double major programs can be found in the Boğaziçi University Double Major Program Internal Regulations (in Turkish).
(Please include both of our Double Major Program co-advisors in all related e-mails you send.)
All interested students are subject to the minimum double major application requirements put forth by the Boğaziçi University Double Major Program Internal Regulations as follows:
When applying for a double major with another department, Economics students must follow the steps outlined in the linked document. Any additional documents to be submitted to the other department may vary, therefore, students should contact the other department directly for details. Economics students applying to other departments for a double major must follow any deadlines set by these departments. The Department of Economics does not have a time constraint for Economics students applying to other departments for double majors.
For Students Registered in Other Departments Applying to Economics for a Double Major:
The Economics Department admits a maximum of fifteen students to its double major programs every year; five are selected from the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, and ten are from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Though applications are accepted for both the Fall and the Spring semesters, the major part of the quotas is usually filled in the Fall.
The deadline for double major applications can be found in the Boğaziçi University Academic Calendar. The applications are evaluated by examining the EC and MATH coded courses in the students’ transcripts as well as their GPAs.
The decisions of the Economics Department have to be approved by the Faculty Executive Board of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences before being finalized, and we are unable to declare a date at which this will happen. Acceptance to a double major program necessitates that you receive an acceptance from your own department as well as one from the department to which you applied.
For all your questions regarding course substitution, program approval, the number of credits required, etc., please contact Ms. Saniye Öner Dönmez at email@example.com .
No, but taking them may improve your chances of acceptance.
You only need to meet the minimum 3.00 GPA requirement to be able to apply. Better grades, however, may improve your chances of acceptance.
Yes, provided you meet the minimum application criteria.
Yes, yes, and yes. If you get accepted to multiple programs, you can register for only one of them. You will be able to choose according to your preferences.
No. The acceptance you received is for the X-Y double major program. You can apply to the Z-Y double major program the following semester if you still meet the minimum application requirements.
Yes, as long as you meet the minimum requirements. However, receiving a P in economics or a math course might put you at a disadvantage over a student who received a good letter grade.
Yes, you can.
Long answer: Your application would not be valid because an X-EC double major does not exist, and you cannot apply to something which does not exist. Short answer: No.
Yes. For example, if you took EC 205 before you started double majoring in Economics, this course requirement will have been satisfied. However, one course can satisfy one requirement. If EC 205 used to be an unrestricted elective for you, it would not count towards an unrestricted elective once it is counted as a compulsory course.
There is no such date set by the Economics Department.
Not all do. You need to contact the department of your interest and find out from them.
- In order to complete my application to the Economics Department, should I do anything in addition to completing my application via BUIS?
No and no.
No. Please don’t.
- When are the application results announced?
All applications are evaluated together after the application deadline and finalized as soon as possible. We ask you to be patient as we cannot announce results without the approval of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences. Since we do not know when that happens, we do not answer e-mails asking when the results will be known.
You need to address this question to them.
No, there is not.
No, actually this may not even be possible due to class time conflicts. You can complete the courses in another order, taking course prerequisites and class time conflicts into account.
No. A double major curriculum is not the sum of the two department’s undergraduate curricula. It is a curriculum in its own right, and one cannot receive either diploma without completing all courses.
