Back to Top   Joint Degree Programs

Joint degree programs are structured so that a student can pursue graduate work in two fields and fulfill the requirements of two degrees; in programs leading to two master's degrees, the degrees are awarded simultaneously. To enter a joint program, the student must be accepted by both of the individual programs. Students who wish to enter a joint program that involves the JD degree should contact the Admissions Office in the School of Law first. Joint programs are offered in the following fields.

Asian studies/Public affairs: MA/MPAff
Asian studies/Business administration: MA/MBA
Latin American studies/Community and regional planning: MA/MSCRP

Doctoral Portfolio Programs

The goal of doctoral portfolio programs is to recognize and encourage cross-disciplinary research. A portfolio program usually consists of four thematically related doctoral-level courses and a research presentation; it must include courses offered by at least two graduate programs in addition to the student's major program. Doctoral portfolio programs are approved by the Graduate School. Although the certification requirements of each program are independent of the requirements for graduate degrees, courses included in the doctoral Program of Work may, with appropriate approval, be counted toward certification. Upon completion of both doctoral and portfolio program requirements, the student's University record reflects portfolio certification.

Information about portfolio programs is available from graduate advisers in the areas that offer them and from the Office of Graduate Studies.
