The goal of this option is to create rich educational opportunities through innovative combination of fields. The "secondary major" offers students the option of studying two subjects from two different programs while earning a baccalaureate degree in the first major without the requirement of earning a second baccalaureate degree in the secondary major. This option allows a student from one degree program to earn a secondary major from a participating department within a different program by fulfilling the requirements set forth by that participating department but without requiring students to enroll in the additional courses that comprise that other program's core curriculum. Through the secondary major option, upon graduation, a student earns one baccalaureate degree from Baylor (through the fulfillment of all requirements from the student's home college or school). Although that student will not be awarded a second degree, the student's transcript will reflect that he or she has earned a secondary major in that second area of study.
The secondary major is an excellent option for student who seek a rigorous and enriching complement to their education in the Hankamer School of Business, or the Schools of Engineering and Computer Science, Education, Music, and Social Work.Secondary Major Requirements
