Joint degree programs afford the student an opportunity to study multiple disciplines in an atmosphere consistent with the University's mission. A growing interrelationship between the public and private sectors has increased the need for leaders with a combination of policy-related skills and specializations in business, dispute resolution, or law. Utilizing the tools of analysis and policy design to effect successful implementation and institutional change, students receive a dynamic and enriched learning experience.
Joint degree programs permit the student to complete the two degrees in less time than would be ordinarily required if the programs were taken separately. Students interested in joint degree programs must apply separately to each school.
