Double Degree Programs
In addition to earning your Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree from Seminole State, now you have the opportunity to earn your bachelor's degree in business administration from the Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI).
THI is located in Ingolstadt, Germany, a city located approximately 45 minutes north of Munich. Ingolstadt is one of Germany's oldest and most beautiful cities and currently serves as the headquarters for Audi.
Seminole State students who participate in this program will spend one year taking courses at THI and earn credits that will count toward their bachelor's degree at Seminole State, as well as their bachelor's degree at THI. On average, students will need 120 credits (combined from both institutions) to be eligbile to graduate with their bachelor's degree from Seminole State and THI.
For students who are considering the possibility of working outside the United States, earning a degree from a highly regarded European institution provides them with a substantial competitive edge over their peers.
Things to Consider:
- This program does not add to the degree completion time or the number of credits required to graduate.
- The Double Degree Program does not add to the cost of your bachelor's degree.
- You do not need to speak German to be eligibile.
- Students who complete the program will have a competitive advantage, especially when pursuing jobs in an international setting.
Seminole State College of Florida is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate and baccalaureate degrees. THI is not accredited by SACS Commission on Colleges and the accreditation of Seminole State College of Florida does not extend to or include THI or its students. Further, although Seminole State College of Florida agrees to accept certain course work from THI to be applied toward an award from Seminole State College of Florida, that course work may not be accepted by other colleges or universities in transfer, even if it appears on a transcript from Seminole State College of Florida. The decision to accept course work in transfer from any institution is made by the institution considering the acceptance of credits or course work.
