Second Bachelor's Degree
A student who has previously earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Utah or from another accredited institution is eligible to pursue a second Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in a different discipline. The major of the second degree cannot be the same as the previously awarded degree. For example, a student who has earned a BA in Psychology cannot pursue a BS in Psychology.
Students should consult with a departmental advisor to determine whether a second bachelor's degree or a graduate program better meets their needs.
Students wishing to earn a second bachelor's degree must fulfill the following requirements:
- All requirements for the major
- Residency Hours Requirement
- American Institutions*
- Quantitative Reasoning (QA and QB)*
- Lower Division Writing*
- Upper Division Communication/Writing*
- International Requirement*
- Minimum 2.00 GPA
- Current requirements for BS, BA, BFA, BSW, BMus, BUS*
*Not required if completed in the first bachelor's degree.
If a student has completed a bachelor's degree outside the U.S. and the degree is recognized by the University, Intellectual Exploration courses are automatically fulfilled. All other requirements are evaluated separately.
