Dual Academic Programs or Degrees

Each graduate degree program is considered separate from any other degree program and has its own learning outcomes. Graduate students who pursue a dual degree must achieve the learning outcomes outlined for each program. Therefore, the policy governing the pursuit of a second Marymount graduate degree is essentially the same as that for the pursuit of a first degree, including the minimum number of credits required for residency, consortium course restrictions, and probation/dismissal policies. The second degree must include at least two-thirds of the total number of credit hours normally required for a single degree, unless specifically noted by a particular dual-degree program. (See program requirement details in each school section of this catalog.)

The university cannot guarantee availability of all course requirements without scheduling conflicts when pursuing a dual academic program or degree.
