Academic Programs

SMU has four schools from which undergraduate students may earn a combination of multiple degrees and/or majors. Minors are not only possible, but encouraged. There are over 100 majors and minors available at SMU. All pre-majors at SMU start in Dedman College working with the award-winning Dedman Advising Center.

Each school has different entrance requirements for majors/minors. Entrance requirements may be found on the school’s Web site. A transfer student who has completed the requirements to declare a desired major may directly enter the major and the school.

Undergraduate students who are planning to pass the Texas Certification exam for K-12 teachers should speak with their academic advisor as soon as possible. The teacher preparation program is a minor that is earned in addition to at least one major from one of the four undergraduate schools.
