Our students often have interests in multiple areas. It is possible to complete a double emphasis. Guidelines for students are available in the Graduate Studies Bulletin on page 16.
Students wishing to complete a double emphasis should note the following:
Only one master’s degree is conferred. (Note: An emphasis is not indicated on the diploma, only on the transcript.)
Applicable courses from one emphasis can be used to fulfill requirements in the other emphasis.
Two distinct capstone projects, one for each emphasis, need to be completed and each capstone project must be from a different capstone category (Curriculum Development, Field Project, Internship, Thesis, or comprehensive exam).
A student with a double emphasis completes the program with a minimum of 39 credits, instead of the 36 credits required for a single emphasis.
