Want a Double Emphasis?
last modified 2010-11-02 08:21 AM
Our students often have interests in several areas. I recently spoke with a student who is interested in completing a double emphasis. It is possible! Guidelines for students are available in the Graduate Studies Bulletin on page 12.
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.
