Requirements for a Double Major and/ or Dual Degree

A student may earn a degree in two different academic disciplines with the permission of the department chairs of both areas and if all requirements of both majors are fulfilled. Students are not permitted to combine the requirements of two or more catalogs. However, double or dual majors can use separate catalogs to meet degree requirements if the second declared major was not in existence at the time of the initial declared major. A diploma will be issued for each major. Pursuit of a second major does not exempt the student from the tuition surcharge. Students are not permitted to pursue an undergraduate and graduate degree at the same time.

Requirements for Dual/ Multiple Concentrations

A student may earn dual or multiple concentrations within the same major, where applicable, with the permission of the department chair and if all requirements of all concentrations are fulfilled. Students are not permitted to combine the requirements of two or more catalogs. Classes may count toward requirements in more than one concentration, but will be counted only once for GPA purposes. Only one diploma will be issued for the said major. The academic transcript will indicate all concentrations. Pursuit of additional concentrations does not exempt the student from the tuition surcharge. Students are not permitted to pursue undergraduate and graduate concentrations at the same time.
