Additional or Concurrent Graduate Programs

Additional Master’s Degree

A graduate student who already holds a master’s degree from LAPU may complete another master’s degree by submitting an application form for the second program, meeting all university and department admission requirements for the second program, being admitted to the second program, and fulfilling the graduation requirements for the second degree. At least two-thirds of the required credits must be different from the first degree. Completion of an additional concentration in the same major does not qualify as an additional master's degree.

Concurrent Graduate Programs

A student intending to pursue two graduate programs concurrently shall meet with the assistant deans of both graduate programs to plan the joint course of study. Concurrent graduate program students must submit an application form for each program, meet all university and department admission requirements for each program, be admitted to each program, and fulfill the graduation requirements of each graduate program. Concurrent programs will not be approved unless at least two-thirds of the credits for each program are distinct from credits applied toward the other program. Completion of an additional concentration in the same major does not qualify as a concurrent graduate program.
