Dual Graduate Degrees

Students may enroll concurrently in two master’s programs or consecutively in multiple programs or certifications by separate application to each program based on the following guidelines:

Some graduate courses are equally applicable to two or more graduate programs. Chatham graduate students can apply relevant courses to two masters' degrees under the following circumstances:

  • Credits must be approved by the Director of the program where credits are being sought;
  • Each student must complete at least 30 graduate credits that are unique to that program. In cases where a student is completing two master's degrees that each require 30 credits for completion, a maximum of six credits may be counted toward both degrees.
  • The program director accepting the credits must ensure that the program of study remains consistent with quality standards for that profession or discipline. In no circumstance will a program director permit acceptance of credits to compromise applicable licensure, certification, or accreditation standards.
  • Students who have already earned a master’s degree from Chatham may apply credits toward a second master's degree at Chatham according to the above guidelines only if they obtained the first degree within four years prior to the semester in which they begin their course of study for the second degree.
  • Students may not enroll in more than two master's degree programs simultaneously.
  • Credits from one course may not be applied to more than two degrees. (Credits applied to both an undergraduate degree and graduate degree may not be applied to a second undergraduate or graduate degree).
