Developing an Undergraduate/Graduate Dual Degree Program

The Double Dawgs program is based on the Academic Affairs Dual Degree Policy, which allows up to 12 graduate hours to satisfy requirements for both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

The Double Dawgs program is a combination of two degree programs, one undergraduate and one graduate.

  • The two programs can be within a single department and discipline (e.g., Accounting BBA and Accounting MAcc), or
  • The two programs can be across departments, schools or colleges (e.g., Electrical Engineering BSEE/Business Administration MBA).

To qualify as a Double Dawgs program, the two degree programs (one undergraduate, one graduate) must be explicitly identified, and the application and eligibility criteria, as well as suitable classes, must be clearly stated.

Department Heads can propose Double Dawgs programs through an online form.

Proposals for fall semester 2017 implementation should be submitted by June 15 to the Office of Curriculum Systems, who will oversee and route the proposals through additional administrative approvals. If a proposed dual degree program includes a new major, the Office of Curriculum Systems will assist you with the approval process.

For further details on proposing undergraduate/graduate dual degree programs, please go to the Office of Curriculum Systems site.

The Office of Curriculum Systems is available to provide assistance in developing and preparing proposals. Please contact currsys@uga.edu or 706-542-6358.
