What is a dual degree?

Dual degree requirements

Because some of the coursework you completed in your first program also satisfies the coursework in your second program, you only need to take the courses that remain (including the capstone experience) to earn a dual degree.

Three steps. Two degrees. One amazing value.

To earn a dual degree, follow these steps:


Once you’ve graduated from your first program, apply for admission to the second degree program using the standard admission process. As an ACE graduate, your application fee gets credited back to you.


Fulfill the requirements of your second degree (refer to the Catalog for full details). Be sure to claim your Continuing Education Grant to reduce your tuition by $750.


Once your coursework is complete, apply for graduation. You're on your way to a second master's degree!
