Dual Degree Programs

Dual degree programs offer undergraduate students the opportunity to complete both a bachelors degree and a masters degree in five years. Students normally complete the majority of their undergraduate work by the end of their junior year and begin working on the graduate degree during their senior year. Dual degree programs require that students apply for admission to the graduate program during their junior year; students must meet all admission criteria for the respective graduate program.Several options are available to geography and environmental science students interested in pursuing a dual degree; interested students should contact the Department of Geography for additional information.
