Joint Degrees

Earn two graduate degrees.

You can pursue two graduate degrees through our partnerships with other professional schools at the University of Pittsburgh and with two foreign universities. This approach reduces the number of credits you need for both degrees and helps shorten your time to graduation.

Master of Public Administration, Master of Public and International Affairs, and Master of International Development students may apply to our joint degree programs unless otherwise noted.
