Students may co-major at the master's level in programs with identical degrees, although the degrees do not necessarily have to have identical requirements, e.g., two master of science programs, one with a thesis requirement and one without. Students must obtain the approval of both graduate programs as well as appropriate representation on the advisory committee, and must meet all requirements of both programs. Students who co-major are not required to declare a minor. Co-majors must meet all requirements for majors in both programs. One degree is awarded and the co-major is noted on the transcript.
