The Dual Degree Program

Graduating from Boston University with more than one degree not only enhances your credentials—it can give you a career-launching advantage in a specialized area of the hospitality industry. A second degree in business, finance, law, marketing, or energy and environmental studies, for example, could give you an edge over other job applicants.

Check out our Dual Degree Program (DDP), which allows you to graduate with diplomas from two BU schools or colleges at the same time. You can apply after your first year at SHA but no later than the middle of junior year. You’ll need to earn at least 144 credits in 36 courses (some programs require more) with a minimum grade point average of 3.0.

DDP Requirements

  • 3.0 cumulative GPA
  • A minimum of 36 courses (144 credits), three semesters in residency, and good academic standing
  • Approval from both colleges involved
  • A well-thought-out, two-page statement of intent
  • Only eight summer courses may be counted
