Combining MS in Bioengineering with Another Master's Degree

Students wishing to combine the MS in Bioengineering with another master's degre must be:

    1. Accepted and concurrently registered in both program; dual MS cannot be earned sequentially because credit from a conferred Master's cannot be applied toward a second Master's, as per the Graduate School Rules.
    2. Satisfy all requirements of both degree programs.

Up to 15 credit hours of courses may be used to satisfy both programs. However, each program will determine which courses count on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us for advising early if you wish to pursue this option.
