Graduate Catalog 2004-2005
Second Master's Degree
A student may pursue two graduate degrees in different disciplines at Bowling Green State University with the approval of the graduate coordinator in his or her initial degree program. A student may be permitted to count up to six credit hours toward the second degree, provided that the courses are completed within the prescribed time-to-degree period. At the time the student is admitted to the second program, the program offering the curriculum leading to the second degree shall review and recommend the courses and credits that may appropriately be included in the second degree program by the submission of a TDP to the Graduate College. Dissertation credit, thesis credit, culminating options, or independent study in the initial degree program may not be used as part of the six hours of credit for the second degree. Subject to the requirements of the particular programs involved, the two degrees may be completed under a combination of dissertation, thesis, and non-thesis plans. This policy applies only to situations in which both graduate degrees are being earned from BGSU.
