Courses Applied Toward Two Master's Degrees

No graduate student may use credit from the same course in meeting the requirements for both an undergraduate and a graduate degree. A student pursuing a second Master's degree may count up to nine (9) credits from the first earned Master's degree toward requirement for the second degree providing the courses are recommended by the student’s advisor and the first Master's degree has been completed before the second degree.

A person may earn a Master's degree at Georgia Southern University after receiving the same degree, in the same or another field, at another institution. The degree sought at Georgia Southern University is subject to the same provisions for transfer of credit as a first degree. If a Master's degree is sought at this University after earning a doctorate or an EdS here, a maximum of nine (9) credits from the doctoral or specialist work may be applied toward the Master's degree with approval of the Master's program advisor.
