Graduate Program

Co-Majors

Masters Level: Students may co-major at the masters level in programs with identical degrees, although the degrees do not necessarily have to have identical requirements, e.g., two Master's programs, one with a thesis requirement and one without.

Students must obtain the approval of both graduate programs as well as appropriate representation on the advisory committee. Co-majors must meet all requirements of both programs. Students who co-major are not required to declare a minor.  One degree is awarded and the co-major is noted on the transcript. Enrolled co-majors will be classified in only one program for record purposes. 

Doctoral Level: Students may co-major at the doctoral level with the approval of both programs and with the appointment of a co-chair from each program on the advisory committee. Co-majors are not permitted between Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Education degree programs. 

Co-majors must meet all requirements for majors in both programs. One degree is awarded and the co-major is noted on the transcript. Enrolled co-majors will be classified in only one program for record purposes. 

The Graduate School will respond to any request for a co-major within five working days of receipt of the request in the Graduate School.
