Not hard, especially if you have a good work ethic and the two fields are somewhat related, ie engineering and computer science for example. But if you use your college electives wisely you can even double major in very different fields, I have a son is a college junior who is double majoring in neuroscience and philosophy. It just takes planning of your course work.
