Overview

The Dual Degree program consists of a primary degree program and a secondary degree program, which allows Queen's students to concurrently complete degree requirements for programs in two different faculties or schools at Queen's University.

One of Commerce, Engineering or Nursing is the primary program, with a secondary program being a Bachelor of Arts (General) or Bachelor of Science (General). A Dual Degree program will usually take at least five years of study.

Learn more about dual degree options in the Faculty of Arts and Science.

Note: Students who have already completed or are in their final year of one degree program should consider a Second Degree program rather than to a Dual Degree program. We encourage you to seek academic advising to fully understand the options, length of study and requirements of a dual or second degree prior to applying. 

Booking an Appointment

The Faculty of Arts and Science is staffed with a team of professional Academic Advisors to answer all of your questions related to your degree program.  To request an appointment, email asc.academic@queensu.ca and they will get in touch with you to collect some information and put you in touch with an advisor.
