Columbia Dual Degree Programs
Drawing on the resources of Columbia University, SIPA offers a number of dual degree programs with other Columbia schools. Students in these programs gain knowledge, skills, and perspectives in fields other than International and Public Affairs. Each dual degree program leads to the award of two degrees in less time than if the two degrees were pursued separately.
SIPA currently has thirteen dual degree programs with the Mailman School of Public Health, School of Law, School of Business, School of Journalism, School of Social Work, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, and the Jewish Theological Seminary. SIPA also offers a program for Columbia undergraduate students, The Five Year Program, which leads to a BA and an MIA or MPA degree in just five years.
Students interested in pursuing any of the Columbia dual degree programs should contact Dean Duane Bruce.
