Dual & Joint Degree Programs

Dual degree programs integrate two graduate degrees from two schools in a reduced amount of time. Applicants must apply and gain acceptance to both schools to obtain dual degree status. The following dual degree programs are offered through the Josef Korbel School:

Master of Public Policy Dual Degree Programs

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
