The correct way to communicate your degree to employers and others is by using the following formats:
Degree: This is the academic degree you are receiving. Your major is in addition to the degree. It can be added to the phrase or written separately.
Double Majors: You are not receiving two bachelor’s degrees. Your primary major determines the degree (BS or BA). If you're not fully sure which of your majors is primary, check CheckMarq or call the registrar's office.
In a letter, you may shorten your degree by writing it this way:
Not sure which degree you are getting?
