Additional Graduate Degrees

A student who holds a master's or higher degree may earn an additional master's degree in another discipline. With the approval of the department chairperson and the graduate dean, a student holding a degree in a discipline may earn another master's degree in the same discipline, provided it is on a different published option. In any case, a maximum of six semester hours submitted in fulfillment of the prior degree program at CMU or elsewhere may subsequently be transferred to another master's degree program, provided the hours apply to the stated requirements of the subsequent program and were earned within seven years of the student's completion of the additional degree.
