Master’s Degree Requirements

Learn about the requirements you need to complete to earn a master's degree at ballbet体育.

In addition to the specific course requirements outlined on each master's degree webpage, ballbet体育 maintains certain requirements for all master's degrees. The ballbet体育 degree requirements that apply to you are those that were in effect when you began continuous enrollment at ballbet体育. Please contact an advisor if you have any questions about these requirements. 

These requirements are for students who enroll in the 2021–2022 academic year. For prior year academic requirements, visit our catalog archive.


More is expected at the graduate level than what is normally required at the undergraduate level. In addition, you usually must complete special requirements at the end of your graduate program. ballbet体育's master's degree programs require you to complete an integrative end-of-program capstone course in which you must demonstrate mastery of content covered throughout the program. All master's degrees require completion of at least 30 credits.

Initial Requirement

Most master's degrees require (0 Credits, UCSP 615), which must be taken within the first 6 credits of study. For master's degrees that require foundation courses (6 Credits, CBR 600), (6 Credits, DCL 600T), or (6 Credits, PRO 600), the required foundation course must be taken first.

The UCSP 615 requirement may be waived if you previously earned a graduate degree from a regionally accredited institution. For more information, contact your academic advisor.

Progression through a Graduate Program

All requirements established for the completion of a master's degree must be fulfilled within five consecutive years. The time limit is calculated from the term in which you successfully complete the first credit course that applies to the program. It does not include the introductory courses (6 Credits, CBR 600), (6 Credits, DCL 600T), and (6 Credits, PRO 600), but does include courses transferred from other institutions and courses transferred from ballbet体育 undergraduate programs as part of an accelerated pathway.

How to Earn a Second Master's Degree

If you have already received a master's degree from ballbet体育, you can broaden your education by earning a second master's degree in a different discipline.

If you have earned a master's degree from ballbet体育 and want to pursue an additional master's degree at ballbet体育, you may not apply coursework twice (i.e., double count, or repeat courses to fulfill the requirements of the additional credential). On a case-by-case basis, ballbet体育 may consider limited substitutions for coursework that is required for more than one master's degree to allow you to complete a second master's degree. If you are not granted these substitutions, you will need to choose an alternate program if you wish to complete another credential at ballbet体育.

Before beginning work toward or registering for a second master's degree, consult an academic advisor. Advisors will be glad to explain the requirements and situations that require department approval, including those for completing an MS in Management or in Information Technology in a second specialization.
