Multiple Major & Multiple Degree Policy
Multiple (double or triple) majors may be earned when a student completes two or more full majors, generally within the 120 hours required for a single degree. The specific major requirements of each major must be fulfilled. The diploma will indicate all majors. If the two or more degree programs are administered by different academic units, the major requirements of each academic program must be fulfilled. The general education requirements must be fulfilled as specified by the department or academic unit responsible for the primary major only. The double or multiple major is only available in B.A./B.A. or B.S./B.S. combinations.
Multiple undergraduate degrees may be earned when a student completes all requirements for each degree and at least 12 credit hours of work beyond that required for the first degree for each additional degree. Students who earn multiple degrees will receive diplomas simultaneously. If the degree programs are administered by different academic units, the general degree requirements and major requirements of all academic units must be completed.
The B.A./M.D. dual degree program has different requirements and is subject to separate regulations. See the School of Medicine section of the catalog. All dual degree programs must follow the established guidelines in the UMKC catalog.
