Earn More Than One Degree

Some Penn students select one of our distinctive coordinated dual-degree programs, while others choose to independently pursue two bachelor’s degrees simultaneously by completing the curricular requirements of two of the four undergraduate schools. Supported by dedicated faculty advisors, students may pursue more than one Penn degree, still graduate in four years, and enjoy an active life beyond the classroom.

 

Dual Degree Programs

A student pursuing a dual degree will receive two bachelor's degrees simultaneously, from two separate schools of the University. A student does not have to choose to participate prior to matriculation.  Refer to individual School sites for information on dual degree programs at each School.
