Dual Majors and Additional Degrees, Undergraduate Students


Effective Date Mar 29, 2018

The dual major is recognized any time a student completes all degree requirements for two bachelor’s degree programs. On completion of the requirements for both programs, the student receives one diploma noting both majors (e.g., “Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Interdisciplinary Science” or “Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences/Ecology and Marine Biology Options”). A student may become a candidate for a second bachelor’s degree (two diplomas) when he or she has completed at least 15 credit hours of additional Florida Tech work beyond the requirements of a single degree in the major requiring the higher number of credits and all requirements listed for both degree programs.

A student may become a candidate for a second or subsequent associate degree when he or she has completed at least nine credit hours of additional Florida Tech work beyond the requirements of a single associate degree in the major requiring the higher number of credits, and all requirements listed for both degree programs.

Florida Tech Online students may pursue a concurrent dual degree only from within the Florida Tech Online programs currently offered. Florida Tech Online students may not seek a second degree from an academic unit outside Florida Tech Online while currently fulfilling requirements for the first degree. A student may only enroll consecutively for a second degree from another academic unit at Florida Tech.
