Double majors are available at most colleges, and sometimes you can do them within four years. Their requirements will certainly vary from college to college and major to major, so your academic advisor is your best resource for planning out a four-year program that will give you the classes you need for each major. However, keep in mind your ability to take elective courses (those classes not required by your majors and often some of the more "fun" college courses) will be sorely diminished.
