Dual Baccalaureate Degrees
The awarding of two degrees at the baccalaureate level may occur under the following circumstances. Coursework in fulfillment of requirements for two baccalaureate degrees (B.S. or B.A. or both) may be undertaken simultaneously or concurrently, but requires significant additional coursework (at least 32 credit hours, usually one additional year) in distinctly different fields. An exception to this requirement is the bachelor of fine arts, in which two degrees may be awarded upon the fulfillment of the requirements of each degree. Students must earn a minimum of 152 credit hours to qualify for two baccalaureate degrees. Students returning at a later semester for their second Undergraduate degree must also earn 152 credits. Students pursuing dual baccalaureate degrees should seek academic advisement from the appropriate faculty advisers or department chairs in both majors to ensure that all dual degree requirements have been fulfilled. The maximum number of degrees awarded at the baccalaureate level is two.
