DUAL UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAMS


To qualify for two undergraduate degrees, i.e., a B.A. and a B.S. degree, or two B.S. degrees, a student must satisfy all requirements for each degree, and complete for the second degree thirty semester hours of study beyond the hours required for the first degree. A student may, however, complete two or more Arts and Sciences majors within the 120 hour minimum requirement for the B.A. degree or two or more Engineering majors within the 128-133 hour minimum requirement for the B.S. in Engineering degree. Students completing both a B.A. and a B.S. degree are exempted from six hours of the 90 hour arts and sciences requirement for the B.A. A student pursuing two degrees is encouraged to meet with a dean in the Office of Undergraduate Studies, 357 Sears Bldg., to discuss requirements. Students who seek a dual-degree program that involves the B.M. must meet Cleveland Institute of Music and Case Western Reserve admission requirements, and seek approval of both the Cleveland Institute of Music and Case Western Reserve University.


MINORS


For the degrees described above, minors are not required. However, students have the option of completing a minor in a discipline other than the major. A minor concentration normally requires 15-18 semester hours and will be indicated on a student’s transcript if the requirements, as outlined below, are fulfilled:

  1. A minor program shall consist of no fewer than 15 and no more than 18 semester hours of specified course work.
  2. The responsibility for designating the requirements for a minor shall lie with the department offering the minor.
  3. With the exception of minors offered by the Case School of Engineering, students must earn a minimum cumulative average of 2.000 for all courses taken to satisfy minor requirements and for which grades are averaged. Transfer students who wish to complete a minor must complete at Case Western Reserve University at least half the requirements for the minor.
