Program of Study. Except as stated below, the master’s degree rules presented above apply to students pursuing two master’s degrees simultaneously.

The student and advisor(s) in each graduate degree program plan an integrated course of study to satisfy the requirements of both degree programs. The Dual Degree Program Plan must be completed and submitted to the Graduate School within one semester or term of planning the integrated course of study with both advisors.

Credit Hours. Students must satisfy the credit hour requirements for each degree program. A minimum of 50 percent of the hours counted toward the credit hour requirement for each degree must be unique to that degree and cannot be used for dual credit. The Graduate Studies Committee may establish a minimum higher than 50 percent.

Dual degree students who also pursue a certificate program cannot count any of the credits used for completing the certificate as dual credit toward either major degree programs, and must comply with the 50 percent unique credit policy for each degree.
