- Course Descriptions
A major is a field of study designated by a prescribed set of courses in an academic discipline. When combined with specific general education and cognate courses, the successful completion of the requirements within the major lead to a degree in that area of study. All degree-seeking students must declare a major.
Double Major Policy
Students have the option of simultaneously completing coursework and graduating with two majors in different fields of study. Only one of these programs may be clinically-based, however. Students must apply by completing the Double Major Request Form and receive approval from the department chairs of both academic programs and Academic Administration. Only students in good academic standing who meet the criteria for progression within each professional program at Adventist University of Health Sciences may apply for the double major status. This form can be obtained from the Office of Enrollment Services.
To graduate, the student must complete all requirements for both majors. Two separate diplomas will be issued. In the Graduation Program, the student’s name will appear under each major as graduating from that program. Refer to the Graduation section of the Academic Bulletin for additional graduation requirements.
