What is the difference between graduating with a double major and a dual degree?
Answered

I am a student at American University and currently working towards a double major and just realized that I won't be actually graduating with two degrees. I wanted to know how exactly this would affect my career path since I will not actually get a diploma for both. For example, I am doing a double major with International relations and Economics (international relations being my first), and if I decide I want to work in economics I don't really have a diploma that will certify I did all the requirements for the Economics bachelor. I want to know if just having it on my transcript record will allow me to work in economics if I want to.

A dual major has emphasis in 2 areas but one degree so you are qualified to work in IR and economics
