V: Special Degrees and Pre-Professional Studies
special degree programs are offered by the joint cooperation
of LS&A and some other college or school within the University.
Admission to some of these programs is highly competitive. Because
many of these programs require specific courses for admission,
it is important for students to identify program interests early
in their undergraduate careers, and often at the freshman level.
Although the basic requirements are summarized in this chapter,
students should consult academic advisors associated with the
LS&A students are interested in applying for admission to
a professional school either after two years of liberal arts
studies or after completing an LS&A degree. The second half
of this chapter describes several pre-professional courses of
study. Pre-professional advising is available at both the Academic
Advising Center and the Office of Career Planning and Placement.
Joint Degree Programs
Joint Degree Programs
may be interested in a joint degree program with one other school
or college, even though it has not been officially established
by the College. Such joint degree programs are planned through
the Academic Standards Board. The student is expected to present
a written statement of the educational purpose of the joint degree.
At least 150 credits are required for a joint degree, including
at least 100 credits of LS&A courses. For a B.G.S. degree
the 100 credits would have to include at least 40 upper-level
of 30 hours of credit must have been completed on the Ann Arbor
campus before a student may apply for a joint degree program,
and the cumulative grade point average for work completed on
the Ann Arbor campus must be 3.0 or better. Any exception to
these requirements must be approved by the Academic Standards
who have been admitted to the BBA program in the School of Business
Administration and who have also completed significant LSA course
work in a concentration may discuss an individualized joint degree
program with the School of Business Administration. Within
specific guidelines of each school, it may be possible to be
granted both degrees.
