Advisor Tip: Double Emphasis

last modified 2010-11-02 08:15 AM

I recently spoke with a student who is interested in completing a double emphasis. If your advisee asks you this question, refer them to page 12 of the graduate studies bulletin.

Advisor Tip: Double Emphasis

What about . . . ?

Students wishing to complete a doubleā€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.
