Obtaining a Second Bachelor's Degree
Getting a 2nd Bachelors degree is equated to being a double major, the only difference is that the 2nd major is obtained at a later date. Classes taken while obtaining the first Bachelor’s (mainly core classes) will be applied to the 2nd Bachelor’s, eliminating the need to retake these classes. The student would then be required to only take new classes that have not already been taken for the new major. The 2nd bachelor’s degree seeking student will take all of the SPHS courses (39 hours).

Additional Steps for a 2nd Bachelors degree seeking student:
1. After acceptance into the UNT Toulouse Graduate School, set an appointment with a College of Public Affairs and Community Service advisor by calling (940)565-4115, located in Chilton Hall Room 290.
The PACSadvisor will review your transcripts from your 1st bachelor’s degree and determine which Core and PACS class requirements you still need. Because of SPHS UG class requirements, the most common classes a student still needs is Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics or level III and level IV of a foreign language. The 1st bachelor’s counts as the minor for the 2nd bachelor’s degree.
2. Once the PACS advisor has reviewed your 1st bachelor’s degree, set an appointment with Lauren Mathews, SPHS Undergraduate Director.
She can be reached at Lauren.Mathews@UNT.edu. At this appointment, you will fill out the paperwork to officially declare SPHS as a 2nd Bachelors degree.
Designation as a 2nd Bachelor’s degree student with the UNT Toulouse School of Graduate Studies AND the 2nd Bachelors Degree plan paperwork is REQUIRED to be an official 2nd bachelor degree seeking student.
3. Take all of the required classes for a bachelor’s degree in SPHS.
