Take the Leap!
Students wishing to pursue dual bachelor’s degrees may enroll simultaneously in the Questrom School of Business and another undergraduate school or college within Boston University. Applications must be made no later than the first semester of the junior year. If admitted, students must satisfy all requirements of both degrees, must be enrolled in the program for at least three semesters, and must complete no fewer than 36 courses and a minimum of 144 credits.
Earning two degrees requires extra course work, which can be completed through a combination of AP credit, summer courses, overloading, and/or extra semesters of study.
We encourage you to explore Boston University’s Undergraduate Advising website as you make your decision. The site includes information regarding academic planning that complements the dual degree information session, more on this below, and information from your current, primary advising office.
Students interested in pursuing dual degrees are required to attend a dual degree information session before scheduling an appointment with an advisor. This applies to both Questrom and non-Questrom students.
