Dual Degree Master's Programs
Dual degrees programs are designed for students who wish to broaden their academic experience and enhance their career preparation by pursuing two complementary master’s degree programs. Most dual degree programs can be completed in 3 to 3 1/2 years.
- Master of Science in Information Studies/Master of Arts in Women's/Gender Studies
- Master of Public Affairs/Master of Arts in Women's/Gender Studies
MA: The Center for Women's and Gender Studies only offers Fall Admission for the MA Program.
Master of Science in Information Studies/Master of Arts (Women's and Gender Studies)
The Center for Women's and Gender Studies and the School of Information offer a dual program leading to the Master of Arts with a major in women's and gender studies and the Master of Science in Information Studies. The program combines training in information studies with study of the role that gender plays in shaping society.
Students seeking admission to the dual degree program must apply through the Graduate and International Admissions Center. Students must be accepted by each individual program in order to be admitted to the dual program. Like all other graduate applicants, the student is responsible for submitting any additional information required by the Graduate Studies Committee for each program.
Students must complete at least sixty-one semester hours of coursework, including either a professional report or a thesis supervised by a faculty member from either the School of Information or the Center for Women's and Gender Studies.
