Dual Concentrations and Dual Degrees
Students may elect to complete a second (or even a third) concentration within the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Of course, careful course planning is required and more than 120 credits (123 in Forensic Accounting) may be required. Students interested in dual concentrations should consult with their Academic Advisor early in their degree course work.
In addition, students may elect to complete a second degree within the School of Business by supplementing the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with the Bachelor of Science in Economics. Such a dual concentration would require the student to complete 150 credit hours as, unlike a dual concentration, a dual degree requires 30 credits beyond the 120 hour Bachelor Degree requirement set by the University. As with a Dual concentration, careful course planning is required. Students interested in a dual degree should consult with their Academic Advisor early in their degree course work to discuss this option.
EXAMPLE DUAL CONCENTRATIONS: ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES
Many public accounting firms now offer a full range of financial services to their clients. In order to gain an understanding of financial management, investment, savings, and risk management strategies for individuals and organizations, many accounting students interested in public accounting are pursuing dual concentrations: Accounting and Financial Services. With careful course planning, accounting students can earn both concentrations within the 120 credits of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Accounting curriculum.
