Requirements for Concurrent or Sequential Degrees

A student pursuing multiple graduate degrees concurrently is considered to be pursuing each one independently, in the sense that each degree can be awarded when all of its requirements are met. A student pursuing multiple graduate degrees, whether concurrently or sequentially, must complete all course and residency requirements of each degree program.Concurrent degrees must be entirely distinct and should not incorporate parts of each other. Double-counting of credits between multiple graduate programs must adhere to official Graduate Division policies. See Credit Policies > Double-Counting Credits.
