Students who wish to pursue two degrees — one from the the Stamps School of Art & Design (BFA in Art & Design or BA in Art & Design), and a second from another academic unit (school or college) — should read the bulletins/handbooks of both units carefully, plan a program of study that meets the degree requirements for both units, and meet with an academic advisor in the target school or college.
The following guidelines apply:
- A minimum of 30 credits (close to one year of credits) must be completed on the Ann Arbor campus before a student may apply for a dual degree program, and the cumulative grade point average for work completed on the Ann Arbor campus must be at least 3.0.
- The student meets with a representative of the second unit to determine the process of admission into their program, the procedure for pursuing the second degree, and to obtain signature approval for MDDP status. The second academic unit will likely require additional evidence of ability such as a formal admission process, completion of specific courses, and/or an audition.
- The student must obtain written permission to pursue a dual degree from both academic units. To do this, download, fill out, and submit the Application for MDDP Form (PDF).
