May I double-major in an arts area (studio art, art history, theatre, creative writing, etc.) and another discipline?

Yes. Within the liberal arts context at Bucknell, students may combine any Bachelor of Arts degree with any additional Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science path (except for neuroscience and biochemistry) and still graduate in four years. Students who apply to the Bachelor of Arts in Music or the Bachelor of Music (in performance, education, composition, or history and literature) programs and who are interested in pursuing a double major in another discipline should speak to music faculty in person at the time of their auditions to discuss the possibilities available to them.
