Dual Undergraduate Degrees

Undergraduates who wish to pursue study in two disciplines may combine degree programs. Possible combinations include:

  1. Two different Bachelor of Science degrees. Examples of combinations are: computer engineering/electrical engineering, physics/music education, management/accounting
  2. A Bachelor of Science degree and a Bachelor of Arts degree. Examples of combinations of majors are: computer science/English, chemical engineering/music, management/psychology
  3. Either the B.A. or a B.S. and a Bachelor of Music (B.M.) degree offered in conjunction with the Cleveland Institute of Music.

To qualify for two degrees, students must meet the requirements of each degree, and complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of study beyond the requirement for one of the degrees. Such programs usually require a minimum of five years, but may be completed in four years by an unusually industrious and capable student.

Students completing both a B.A. and a B.S. degree are exempted from 6 hours of the 90 hour arts and sciences requirement for the B.A.

Students interested in pursuing any of the degree combinations listed above should consult the Office of Undergraduate Studies. Students who seek a dual degree program that involves the B.M. must meet admission requirements of the Cleveland Institute of Music.
