Concurrent/Dual/Second Bachelors Explanation
A concurrent major is a second major pursued alongside the primary major. The
majors can be in one or more colleges. One degree will be awarded from the
college of the primary major. The university requirements (University
Studies) must be met only once. The degrees for the major (B.A., B.F.A., B.S.F.C.,
etc) need not be the same.
A dual degree is a second degree pursued in either the same college as the first
degree or in another college. The university requirements (University Studies)
must be met only once. Students must meet all of the college and major
requirements for both majors. Students must complete at least 30 credit hours of
UW (minimum 12 upper division hours) beyond the credit hours required for the
degree with the smallest number of credit hours required. An academic advisor
for each degree is required. Multiple degrees and multiple diplomas will be
awarded, and the student must graduate with both degrees in the same semester.
A second bachelor degree is a second degree pursued in one or more colleges.
Students must meet all of the university and college requirements as prescribed
for a first bachelor degree. Students who completed the first bachelor
degree at another institution are held to completion of all university
requirements. The second bachelor degree may have the same title as the
first degree and may be in the same college as the first degree, but if in the
same college it must be in a different major.
concentrations, concurrent majors, and some certificates must have the
same graduation date as the primary degree. See your advisor for
