Double Majors

College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

The College of Engineering (COE) and College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) have a reciprocal agreement that allows students to double major in departments of those two colleges. A second major requires a minimum of 30 hours in addition to the degree requirements of each student's primary major.

To obtain a double major, students need to:

  • Go to COE Academic Programs office in 206 Engineering Hall to obtain the appropriate form.
  • Plan out the courses you would take to achieve 128 hours required in Bioengineering and the 30 additional hours required to obtain the second major.
  • Complete the form with the assistance of your Bioengineering department advisor, and obtain your advisor's signature once completed.
  • Proceed to the LAS Central Student Office in Room 144 Computing Applications Building, LAS, (333-1705), to obtain an LAS advisor signature.
  • Once completed, return the form to COE Academic Programs office for the signature of COE Advising Dean Umberto Ravaioli.
