Double Major

Undergraduate Nursing Students

As a general rule, a major consists of at least 30 credits of coursework in a discipline, but specific requirements are set by the department. If a student elects to seek a second major, the requirements stipulated for each major program must be satisfied. The requirements for each major are established by the appropriate academic department and are subject to modification.

Students interested in a second major are urged to consult with the appropriate department chair or program director concerning current requirements for the major, necessary prerequisites, and the acceptability of any transfer credits.

Please note, in order to maintain good academic standing in the nursing program, students must abide by the program of study identified by the faculty to achieve satisfactory progression toward their nursing degree. The primary degree in nursing takes preference over meeting the requirements of the second major.

Once a decision is made to pursue a second major, it is the student's responsibility to file a Declaration of Major/Minor form in the department that offers the major. The double major is recorded on the student's transcript but only one bachelor's degree is conferred upon graduation.
