What is a dual degree?

A dual degree is earned by completing majors from two different colleges. For example, if you fulfill the requirements for a major in Speech and a major in History, you would receive a Bachelor of Science in Communication and a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts. A dual degree requires you to fulfill requirements for both degrees and complete 24 hours over the degree with the most required hours. You may also declare a simultaneous major. It will provide you with registration access to classes in both majors.
