A student who completes all the requirements of two curricula
may be granted two Bachelor of Science degrees. Overloads or more
than four years of academic work will probably be required.
The plan of study must include all requirements of both
departments and must contain at least 32 quarter hours of work more
than the requirements of either department curriculum alone. The
additional credits may be earned during summers (including Transfer
Credit), by Overloads during the academic year, or by
additional terms of enrollment at Rose-Hulman.
Same as that for Double Major.
Some two degree program combinations are prohibited. In
particular, two degree programs are prohibited if they do not
automatically require 32 hours in addition to the requirements of
either degree alone after all common courses (including routine
substitutions) are utilized. For example, two degree programs in
Mathematics & Computer Science, Mathematics & Economics,
Optical Engineering & Physics, Computer Engineering &
Computer Science, and Computer Engineering & Electrical
Engineering are prohibited. Upon petition, the Curriculum Committee
may grant exceptions to these prohibitions for exceptionally well
thought-out programs which meet the 32-hour rule by including
elective upper level courses from the majors in question.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The fact that a student is pursuing a Two Degree
Program is NOT a sufficient reason for approving an overload
when the student's GPA is low.
