Dual Majors and Degrees

Kettering University's academic programs are rigorous. For students who endeavor to achieve more than most, it is possible to obtain either a dual major or a dual degree.

The Difference

A double major means students obtain a  single bachelor’s degree while completing all course requirements for two different majors within the degree. Both majors are shown on one diploma.

A dual degree means students earn two undergraduate degrees simultaneously by completing all course requirements for any two majors that in combination require at least 28 credits beyond the 161 credits required for a single degree. Two diplomas are awarded.

Typically, students pursuing either of these options require at least one additional academic term.
