Second Degree
Students who wish to have two different bachelor's degrees conferred simultaneously must complete: the general education requirements of both programs; both the usual and special requirements of a major or specialization in each program; and at least 18 credit hours more than the minimum required to earn one bachelor's degree.
Individuals who seek a second and different bachelor's degree after graduation must complete the general education requirements appropriate to the degree being sought, meet the residence requirements of a major, concentration, or specialization, and spend a minimum of two semesters (at least 32 hours) in residence at Mercer.
In cases where course work from a previous degree is used to fulfill requirements for any second degree, the grade point averages for the two degrees will be combined.
