Dual Degree Programs

The University of Denver is home to several highly ranked professional schools, institutes and centers. The University is also recognized as a leader in cross-disciplinary research and teaching.

The Institute for Public Policy Studies has developed dual degrees with many professional programs, enabling students to complete work on two degrees simultaneously, in less time than it would take to pursue each degree separately. Additionally students can create a specific focus of curriculum through the flexible dual-degree program. For example, you may explore the possibility of combining the MPP with:

  • master of business administration at the Daniel's College of Business
  • master of science in finance at the Daniel's College of Business
  • master of international management at the Josef Korbel School for International Studies
  • master of social work
  • many more options

For more information on dual degrees, please visit DU's Office of Graduate Studies.
