Students may choose a dual concentration option after their first semester. Students who have been approved for a dual concentration option must complete the course requirements for each concentration. Courses completed can only be counted once towards one concentration. Students approved for a dual concentration will be required to meet the requirements for the catalog year in which their dual concentration is approved.

The management and human resource management concentrations cannot be combined as a dual concentration option. Therefore, dual concentration options are:

  • Management/Accounting
  • Accounting/Human Resources Management

Students seeking a dual concentration must complete a Dual Concentration Request Form (PDF).
