[TACRAO] Listserv Dual Graduate Degrees

At UT Tyler this would depend on if the two degrees were from the same College; there would be a double program listing either way since we use a single program for all four of our commencement ceremonies.

Ø  If both degrees were in the same College they would walk once using a single name card that would list both degrees alphabetically by major. They would need to pick which hood they wanted to be presented on stage.

Ø   If the degrees were from different Colleges they would have two name cards and be eligible to walk in both ceremonies. They could receive each hood separately during the appropriate ceremonies.
We currently have a formalized M.B.A./M.S.N. that follows the latter example, but have a general dual/concurrent degree policy that allows for the former to occur with any number of degree combinations.

Subject: [TACRAO] Listserv Dual Graduate Degrees

I am interested in from hearing from institutions granting graduate degrees, specifically if you have a dual-degree program. We have a dual-degree program from which we will graduate our first students in May. Both degrees are Master of Arts, but from different disciplines. We usually award the hood based on the color of the discipline, not the degree. We don't think the student should "walk" twice, but should they receive two hoods?  How do you recognize these students in the ceremony and the printed program?  Your experience and insights are appreciated!

Thank you.
