Dual Degree Programs

  • Students may propose a flexible dual degree program that links two master’s degrees or a master’s degree and a JD degree. 

    Dual degrees must be pursued concurrently, not consecutively. In order to meet this requirement, students interested in pursuing a dual degree must matriculate into the second program no later than the first available term following fifty percent (50%) coursework completion of the first program. 

    Students should complete both degrees at the same time. However, students can receive the first degree as long as all original requirements and credits for the first degree have been met. They then have up to 18 months to complete the second degree. Students pursuing a dual degree with the Sturm College of Law must complete all requirements for both degrees before the law degree can be awarded. Students will not be graduated and certified to take the bar examination unless both programs have been completed. Students must apply for graduation for both programs.

    Students must submit the proposal for the Flexible Dual Degree no later than one term prior to matriculation into the second degree. Any significant changes to the approved program require the student to resubmit a revised proposal packet to the deans/chairs/directors and advisors of both programs and the Office of Graduate Studies. For specific information about proposing and/or revising a Flexible Dual Degree, please see the appropriate section in the Graduate Policy Manual: http://bulletin.du.edu/graduate/gradpolicy/.
