    Default TESU Second Degree with Dual (Double) Major

    I have already earned (at a different university) a BA in Psychology. Is it possible at TESU to earn a 2nd Bachelors degree with a dual major in Biology AND Natural Science/Mathematics? Or would I just have to pick one of those two majors ? It seems like I could obtain both majors with some added but not unreasonable effort.

    I looked on this website and the TESU website but did not find a definitive answer. I have not applied to TESU yet.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    They won't let you double major with a broad major like Liberal Arts (I don't think BANSM is offered anymore outside of Lib Arts). You can double two specific majors like math and biology. You will need 24 new credits subsequent to your BA in Psych in each of the two majors although you can have 9 overlapping new credits (effectively 12 capstone overlap with the capstone which is only needed once per degree).
    TESU BA CS and Math (graduated December 2016)
    Courses/exams for both CS and Math: SL Calc 1, SL Calc 2, APU Linear algebra, TESU capstone
    Courses/exams for CS: TESU Computer Architecture, DSST MIS, DSST cybersecurity, CSU-Global System Analysis, rest B&M courses from the past
    Courses/exams: TESU College Geometry, TESU Mathematical Modeling, edX differential equations (2 courses), rest B&M courses from the past

    I don't think they will let you do that. It's like the BSBA in General Management AND Accounting. The GM portion is general, and you can't take a general concentration and a specific one - you can only take 2 specific ones. The BANSM is general, while the Bio is specific. You can do BANSM, or you can do Bio, but not both. If you wanted a dual degree, you would have to take Bio and another specific concentration like Math or CS.

    You can choose any 2 BSBA concentrations, except General Management.
