Dual Baccalaureate Degrees
The awarding of two degrees at the baccalaureate level may occur under given 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. Exceptions to this requirement are the bachelor of fine arts and bachelor of technology, 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 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.
