Student Seeking a Second Graduate Degree

A student who already holds a graduate degree from an accredited institution may pursue a second graduate degree. The second degree must open a new area, field, or major approved by the student’s advisor.

With the exception of coordinated degree programs, the degree requirements for the second graduate degree must be satisfied without using courses applied to a previous degree. Credit applied to a previous degree which duplicates a portion of the program required under the second degree will not reduce the number of hours required for the second degree. Courses already taken would not have to be repeated, but additional course work would be substituted for such previously completed courses.
