Concurrent Degree Arrangements

Graduate students can further customize their education at ASU by pursuing a concurrent degree or certificate along with their sustainability degree.

The main benefit of pursuing concurrent degrees is the opportunity to share a percentage of credit hours between the two programs, allowing students to earn two master’s degrees in two to three years.

Graduate Education’s Graduate Policies and Procedures outline the many details associated with pursuing two degrees at the same time. Students considering this option should take time to read through these details carefully.

Other Concurrent Degree Arrangements

Pursuing a concurrent degree in a program other than those the School has formal arrangements with is possible; however, advising from the SOS graduate coordinator and the other program is recommended as early as possible. Beginning one graduate program and then adding a concurrent degree in a later semester may have consequences with regards to pre-admission credits, eligibility of sharing classes between the two programs and tuition expense of maintaining continuous enrollment in both programs until completing both degrees. Students can explore other programs by using ASU’s Degree Search .
