Dual Masters Degrees in Public Health

The beauty of public health is that there are many avenues one can take to make a difference in the world. This can be by running a non-profit organization, changing health care policies, directly working with patients, or even all of the above – there are many opportunities within the public health field!

If you are the type of person who wants to do it all or are interested in more than one field of study, a dual masters degree program might be for you! 

Dual degree programs provide an avenue for students to concurrently enroll in two degree programs so that duplication in course content is minimized, academic interaction is more efficient, and the time and costs incurred are reduced compared to earning the degrees independently. Shared crediting of some coursework makes it possible for students to complete both degrees in the average length of two to three years depending on the program. Students interested in dual degree programs usually must apply and be admitted separately to each individual program and meet the requirements of each program for its respective degree.

Even though the idea of receiving a dual degree may sound intimidating, depending on your interests and the sector you would like to work in receiving your dual degree may be extremely beneficial.
