Double Majors and Double Degree

Students may complete the requirements of two majors as either a double major or a double degree. With a double major, students complete the major (Group V) requirements for two majors and receive one degree. Students in this situation need only to satisfy the distribution requirements of the first major. They may use courses in the second major to satisfy the distribution requirements. With the double degree option, students complete two majors and receive two degrees. These degrees are of different type. Examples could include a student receiving a B.S. in Geology and a B.A. in English (different types of degrees) or a B.S. in Business and a B.S. in Biology (different divisions of the university), or a B.S. in Education and a B.A. in Geology (different types of degrees and different divisions of the university). A student pursuing a double degree would need to satisfy the distribution requirements for both majors.
