Dual Degree Programs at the Master's Level and Bachelors + Master's or Graduate Certificate Level

Dual-degree programs allow students to simultaneously pursue degrees at the master's level in two fields of study or a Bachelor’s plus either a Master’s or Graduate degree. For dual Masters degrees, students must complete at least 80 percent (rounded up) of the credit hours required for each degree separately. Students must satisfy admission, course and examination requirements of both degree programs.

For dual Bachelors plus Master’s or Graduate Certificate programs, a maximum of 9 credit hours from the Bachelor’s degree program may be applied toward the Master’s degree, depending on what the department or home degree program has approved.  The hours and grades earned on these credits will be applied toward the Bachelor’s degree.  The number of dual hours will also be credited toward the total hours needed for the Master’s degree without the grades being computed into the GPA.
