Doctoral Degrees in Education
Students in a doctoral program may declare a double major. A double major requires students to take all of the required course work in both majors. No minor is required, and some required courses outside of the major proper may be double-counted (i.e., research courses— including inquiry linkage courses, foundations courses, and foreign language courses). In some cases it is possible to count courses taken in one major area as part of the other major, but such courses may not be double-counted. Double majoring students must include two representatives from each major on both their advisory and research committees (except Ed.D. double majors), and they must take qualifying examinations in both major areas. Only one dissertation is required. Special forms are available at the Office of Graduate Studies for the appointment of double major advisory and research committees.
