Boston University Dual Degree Program
Students wishing to pursue dual bachelor’s degrees may enroll simultaneously in the College of Communication and another undergraduate school or college of Boston University through the Boston University Dual Degree program. Applications for admission may be made no later than the beginning of the second semester of the junior year. Students must have the required 3.0 GPA when applying. A grade of B or better is required in COM CO 201 prior to application. COM CO 201 may only be taken once if a student is attempting to enroll in the Dual Degree program. Applications are not accepted during the freshman year. If admitted, students must satisfy all requirements for both degrees, be enrolled for at least three semesters, and complete no fewer than 144 credits. Further information about opportunities in the Dual Degree program is available at the Student Services office, Room 123.
Please note: For students entering Boston University in the Fall 2011 semester or later, the required gateway course will be COM CO 101 with a grade of C or higher (instead of COM CO 201). Students who entered BU prior to Fall 2011 have the option to complete either COM CO 101 with a C or COM CO 201 with a B as their gateway course.
