Special Considerations for Masters/Embedded Masters Students
If you are either pursuing a Master's degree or have completed an embedded Master’s while doing a PhD program, there are special considerations regarding overlapping coursework between your home program and your certificate curriculum. Please be sure to review Rackham’s policies on double-counting courses with Master’s degrees here.
Students from non-Rackham programs are responsible for checking with their home programs if any double counting restrictions apply.
