Joint Degrees

Several special degree programs are offered by the joint cooperation of LSA and other colleges or schools 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. Although the basic requirements are summarized on this page, students should consult academic advisors associated with the various programs.

Students may earn the B.S. degree awarded by the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning and a second degree awarded by LSA.
