Dual or Joint Degree Requirements

Date Implemented: February 24, 2009

A student who has a master's degree from the University of St. Thomas must earn no fewer than 24 semester credits above and beyond the requirements for that degree in order to qualify for a second master's degree at the university.

Students who are earning two master's degree simultaneously must have no more than 24 semester credits shared between the requirements for the two degrees.

Important Note: In the absence of a more stringent policy at the school or college level the University Graduate Academic Policies apply. Should a graduate program not have a specific policy or should there be omissions or gaps in the policy for a specific graduate school program, the University Graduate Policy shall govern.

The Graduate Academic Policies are the responsibility of the Graduate Curriculum Committee Convener. For additions or revisions contact gradcurriculum@stthomas.edu.
