Double Major on Resume

Postby SonicRoots » Thu Oct 10, 2013 5:56 pm

How do I properly include a double major on a resume? I have seen that some people have said to separate the two majors with a comma since saying the word "and" may confuse a person. Would a "/" work?

Example given:

I double majored in Finance and General Management

UNIVERSITY OF ________

B.A. in Finance/General Management - December 2011
GPA: 3.79/4.0

For me, the slash actually suggests its one major. I would use 'and' or '&'.

I'd go with "&". The slash does make it seem like one major.

I'd go with &. "And" is often used for single majors.

Thanks guys. Seems like there is not a concrete answer but I'll definitely leave out the "/" and the "and". How about this?

UNIVERSITY OF XX

Bachelor of Business Administration - December 2011
Majors: Finance, General Management
GPA: 3.79/4.0
