Dual Degrees

Individual Dual Degrees

To pursue an integrated course of study combining two master's degree programs, graduate students may, with prior approval of the two department chairpersons, embark upon their own individualized dual degree program culminating in two master’s degrees, under the conditions specified in the UNM Catalog under the heading Dual Degree Programs - Individual.

Students pursuing an individual dual-degree program must satisfy the admission requirements of both graduate programs. There must be an application and application fee to each degree program. Anderson School of Management will accept the GRE in lieu of the GMAT. Those planning to enter the dual program should consult with the admission officers of both schools or programs as early as possible.
