Dual and Joint Degrees

Many students come to Heller to further a career that strives for social justice. We believe that an interdisciplinary focus is key to getting at the root causes of systemic social problems. While all of our degree programs incorporate interdisciplinary instruction and curriculum, many master’s students opt to take their studies even further by adopting a dual or joint degree option. Dual and joint degree programs not only can strengthen your understanding of a given issue, but they can also increase your professional network and broaden your job prospects when you graduate.
 

What is a dual degree?

Students in dual degree programs fulfill the complete requirements for each degree, earning degrees for both programs.
 

What is a joint degree?

Joint degree programs are created by special agreement between programs, allowing students to fulfill a modified set of requirements. Please note that students in joint degree programs earn only one degree.
