Double-counting of courses

Double counting of courses

You may count a single course towards the requirements of two specializations when the requirements overlap. Specializations include Majors, Minors, Areas of Concentration and Certificates.

BA degree students may only double count (or share) courses between a maximum of two specializations.

Half of the credits in a second specialization may be taken in fulfillment of the first specialization. Thus, half of any specialization must be unique to or distinct to that specialization.  

Typically, you can double count between:

Major and a Minor: 2.5 credits.

Major and Major: 4 – 4.5 credits

Area of Concentration and Area of Concentration: 2.5 credits

Major/Minor/Area of Concentration and Certificate: 1.0 credits
