Double Major = one Bachelor's degree with two majors. Need 120 or more credits to graduate.
Dual Degree = two Bachelor's degrees, done in one of the following ways. Need 30 more credits to graduate. Great option for anyone ahead in credits and/or doing summer/winter coursework.
- two majors in CLAS with 150 credits or more
- three majors in CLAS with 150 credits or more - must be done as a dual degree
- two or more majors with at least one in each of two separate schools (ie: one in CLAS and the other in another school on campus) - must be done as a dual degree. Needs 30 more credits than the school with the highest number of credits to graduate.
Ahead in credits but don't plan to graduate early?
Doing some summer/winter courses?
If you are ahead in credits and/or doing some courses in summers/winters, you may be close to graduating with a second degree! Requires at least two majors and 150 credits in CLAS.
In CLAS, a second major is EASY!
A major is often just a few more courses than a minor.
Use towards your
- 2nd W course,
- related courses and
- 45 credit rule
- or use some electives to finish
