Double Majors for AAS Programs
The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree is intended to provide specialized education. Therefore, it does include a major specialty and students may earn more than one AAS degree.
Associate of Applied Science degree-seeking students may apply to graduate (during the same semester) with two majors. For example, a student may select two areas from the approved majors within the Associate of Applied Science degree program (such as Process Technology and Industrial Process Instrumentation).
Students must apply and be accepted into each major program. Students may request a double major at the time of initial admission to KPC/UAA or add a major at a later date through the Change of Major degree process. Forms are available from the Admissions office in Campus or Enrollment Services or from the KPC website. Students must satisfy the General University Requirements, the General Course Requirements, and both sets of major requirements. Students must satisfy the catalog requirements in effect at the time of acceptance into the major(s), or the catalog requirements in effect at the time of graduation.
A double major is not applicable to the Associate of Arts degree.
Students who have received a baccalaureate degree from another regionally accredited college or university and who want to obtain an associate’s degree from KPC/UAA must:
- Meet program admission requirements;
- Complete the General University Requirements but not the General Education or General Course Requirements; and,
- Complete the Major Program Requirements.
