Hello,

I'm just wondering if it's possible or has anyone done it before? I understand getting a second degree from TESU means doing 30 credits after your first degree, but is it possible getting a third degree out of it too?

Eg, a double degree in CS and Math ? Or a Double major ? I'm not sure if it'll work but I'm looking at the amount of math needed for CS to prep for graduate school (Cal 1/2/discrete math/liner algebra) and it got me thinking, could you just top up more math credits and get a degree in math too?

I'm a tad confused what you're trying to ask. A double degree in CS & Math is a double major, so if you get this degree, they won't allow another BA in Math as you would have already attained a BA in Math with the double major. If that's what I am thinking... I guess that's what you're asking about...

yeah im not sure myself. LOL

lets see, i've been reading on the website about 'Earning a Second or Successive Baccalaureate Degree'

https://tesu.smartcatalogiq.com/current/...of-Degrees
so if i did 24 credits in math after my first degree, possible to get a math degree ?

if i did another 24 credits of CS after my first degree, possible to get a CS degree and the math degree ?

Is that how it'll work?

First off, the 24 credits are the minimum, technically it's very common to be able to complete a double major with enough credits in each of the majors. Credits required are determined by the AOS. The Computer Science and Math, both have 45 required credits for the Area of Study and share a capstone and NSM elective credits.

For the CS, you need a minimum of 36 credits transferred in because of the 18 CS required and 18 CS electives.

For the Math, you need a minimum of 30 credits transferred in because of the 15 M required and 15 M electives.

To answer your question: yes, you can get a 2nd bachelor's degree; no, you can't get a 3rd bachelor's degree.

You can get a 2nd degree with two AOS, though. So, if you got Psychology before then you could come back and get a Math/Comp Sci degree later. Or something like that.
