About studying two Masters degree through distance in the same year

Date: 06 Dec 2015   Posted By: harry     Group: Education    Category: India Educational Consultants   

I have completed MBA in 2011-2013. At present I'm doing M.SC psycholgy and M.A (HRM) in two different universities both are in (2015-2017) through distance education. After completion I am planning to work as a Professor out of interest. Is it legal to show two simultaneous Distance degrees in my resume? Is it that two simultaneous degrees will not be accepted for the teaching job? Looking forward for answers from experts.

In India, double Graduation is not allowed. The rule is silent about double Post-Graduation in the same year. However, it can be stated that you have to register yourself in an University to pursue Post-Graduation. For joining another University, you require Migration Certificate from the former University. Without Migration Certificate, you can't register yourself in another University. So, I think, doing Post-Graduation from different Universities simultaneously is not permissible. Even if it is allowed, you may have to face lots of questions in future in this regard.

The degrees are awarded on passing specified examinations. If an individual passes two examinations by fair means and earns two degrees simultaneously then legally the degrees cannot be held invalid provided at no stage any wrong information was furnished and no fraudulent means was adopted.

The two degrees can be done simultaneously only if both or any one are distance.
You cannot study two full time courses simultaneously. Since you are expected to spend full time in a particular course. So how can you be in two places at the same time.

You can show two degrees in your resume, but most often for university teaching positions, a distance degree is not acceptable.

Though may be pursuing two degrees simultaneously is illegal in India, but many people are doing the same. In resume it is not advisable to show the two degrees simultaneously which are completed in the same year. But you can make two different resumes, having two different degrees. Apply for different fields using different resumes according to the skills required in the job.
