The Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University began offering a unique dual major program with the College of Arts and Sciences that will allow undergraduates to major in one of four sciences in combination with a business major from the Whitman School. The program equips students with the essential skills necessary to become an effective business leader and scientist, giving them an edge in a competitive job market.

The four sciences majors from which students can choose are biology, biotechnology, chemistry and earth science; students can pair a science major with any of the eight Whitman majors, which include accounting, entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises, finance, management, marketing management, real estate, retail management and supply chain management.

Students fulfill the degree requirements for both the Whitman School and the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University, completing a minimum of 140 credits. After completing the program, students receive a bachelor’s degree (one diploma) awarded by both schools.

The dual major science program was the latest in a series of new offerings at Whitman, which also included an Accelerated Master’s Program in Accounting and 3+3 program with Syracuse University’s College of Law, allowing students to complete a B.S. and J.D. in just six years. Whitman also continued to offer the dual major option with the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and the School of Information Studies (iSchool).
