Second Master's Degree at North Georgia

A student who wishes to earn a second master's degree must complete all specific course requirements related to the second degree. The program coordinator and the head of the department may recommend to the dean that the number of credits required for the second degree be reduced by up to 30 percent to reflect course content common to both degrees. The student has two options:

  1. Student may complete all of the aforementioned requirements and apply for the two degrees to be conferred simultaneously.
  2. Student may complete the first degree, apply for its conferral, and then complete the second degree by earning a number of credits in residence after the date of the first degree's conferral that is no less than 70 percent of the number of credits normally required for the second degree.
