Double Majors

Students may elect to graduate with two majors. In such instances, students must fulfill the requirements for each of the majors. In satisfying the requirements of two majors, some courses may be found to be applicable to both. Such courses (including cross-listed offerings) may be counted towards each major, but not beyond a maximum permitted overlap of 5 (four-credit) courses.

Students pursuing a double major will receive either a Bachelor of Arts degree or a Bachelor of Science degree depending on the major disciplines. If one of the majors is offered as a Bachelor of Science Program (B. Sc.) the diploma issued will be a Bachelor of Science.  

Second Diploma

Graduates of The American University of Paris may pursue a second BA or BSc degree at the institution. To do so they must obtain prior approval from the Associate Dean for Academic Administration, have a GPA of 3.00 or above, and take at least 32 additional credits in residence. The program for the second degree must conform to all the requirements for the major in the field.
