Dual Degree Programs

A dual degree program is a formalized path of study that allows a student to pursue two different degrees at the same time, either at the same institution or at different institutions, and possibly complete them in less time than it would take to earn them separately. The two degrees may be in the same subject or in two different subjects; they may be at the same level (e.g., master's-master's) or at two different levels (e.g., doctoral-master's).

Students must meet the admission requirements for both degree programs. Other limitations or requirements may apply, depending on the program. Interested individuals may click on the links below for additional information.
