Students should consider pursuing two majors ONLY if they are passionate about both subjects.
To be eligible for a Simultaneous Degree you must be admitted to the Haas Undergraduate Program through the standard process and currently have an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher.
Once you have been admitted to the Business Major, you should obtain the Simultaneous Degree packet from the appropriate College (i.e. Engineering, Letters and Science). If you wish, you can have the other major sign the packet before submitting it to the Undergraduate Program Office.
Continuing Berkeley students only: If you are already in another major when admitted to the Haas Undergraduate Program, you are required to submit the Simultaneous Degree packet by July 1st. Failure to submit the packet by that date might result in your inability to enroll in business courses.
Continuing Berkeley students only: If you are not already in another major when admitted to the Haas Undergraduate Program, you may submit the Simultaneous Degree packet when you are eligible for admission to your other major.
Packets should be submitted to the Haas Undergraduate Program Office, Room S450 in the Student Services Building. The packet will be reviewed within 2 to 3 weeks and you will be notified by e-mail for pick up.
Students must graduate from both majors in the same semester. If you are dropped from one major's degree list, you must be dropped from the other major's degree list as well. If you are aware that you are not completing your other major's degree requirements, you must notify Barbara Felkins.
Students are allowed to request to extend their date of graduation by one semester in order to complete the other major. However, they must submit the simultaneous degree packet no later than the end of the first semester of their senior year. All requirements for the Haas degree (this includes core courses, breadth, American Cultures, American History and Institutions) must be completed in the term prior to the requested extra semester and they will not be allowed to take any upper division business courses, this includes UGBA 198 and 199. In addition they are not eligible to participate in Haas co-curricular activities such as Experiential Learning programs or international Case Competitions. We encourage students to take advantage of these activities where possible during their first two years. E-mail Barbara Felkins (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions or wish to request an extension of your date of graduation.
