Students with a first major in the College may declare an additional major on the B.S. degree. Approval by the department and college of both majors is necessary. The degree awarded will be that of the first major. All degree requirements for each major must be satisfied, including all University Curriculum Requirement associated with any major as well as all other requirements.
Students must receive approval of courses they wish to take at another college or university following their admission to Texas Christian University. Students should gain specific course recommendations from department advisors, then seek approval from the office of the Dean of the College. Students may not interrupt their last thirty hours with coursework at another institution.
Degree Plan and Notification of Intent to Graduate
Students must request a degree plan in the Office of the Dean typically after completing 60 hours. After a degree is awarded, no further work may be applied to the degree. Students must also file an Intent to Graduate in the Office of the Dean at the beginning of the last year of course work.
Students are responsible for meeting degree requirements of the major. It is essential that students understand their degree plans and maintain communication with their departments. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with a departmental advisor on a regular basis, reviewing progress toward the degree.
