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

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Prepscholar Is a great resource and I found this
A dual major has emphasis in 2 areas but one degree so you are qualified to work in IR and economics
