Double Specialization
Students are encouraged to complete their M.Ed. degree with a double specialization. Requirements must be completed for each specialization selected, including all elective credits. Overlapping courses will be considered, though a minimum of 18 additional credits unique to the second specialization is required. Final requirements for the double specialization will be determined by your faculty advisor. Upon completion of all requirements, the degree and both specializations are posted to your official transcript and diploma.

Second Specialization
Students who have already graduated with their M.Ed. degree and wish to return for a second specialization from the non-licensure program must begin by submitting an application for readmission. Upon readmission, all requirements must be completed for the second specialization, including all elective credits. Overlapping course work from the student's original degree/specialization will be considered, though a minimum of 18 credits unique to the second specialization is required. Additionally, courses taken more than six years prior to the date of readmission may not be accepted. Final requirements for the second specialization will be determined by your faculty advisor. Upon completion of all requirements, the second specialization is posted to your official transcript and a certificate for the second specialization is awarded to you.
