Combined Degree Programs

A combined-degree program is reserved for exceptional students and results in the joining of curricula of an existing baccalaureate or professional degree program and an existing master’s degree program within the Purdue University system. Combined degree programs formally approved by the participating academic units and the Graduate School may use a limited number of free elective credit hours of 50000- and 60000-level coursework taken to satisfy the baccaluareate or professional degree on the master’s degree plan of study. The maximum number of free elective course credits which may be counted for the master’s degree varies with the total credit hours required for the master’s degree (as shown below). Undergraduate excess credits cannot be used in combination with the credits already used in a combined degree program.
