Joint & Dual Degree Options

Build robust expertise by earning two Master’s degrees in three years or less. 

Why Pursue a Joint or Dual Degree?

Our joint and dual degree options permit students to expand their skill-sets and resumés via an integrated, condensed curriculum. Developing complementary skills allows for greater career opportunities, particularly with the emerging need for specialists who can bring cutting edge knowledge to traditional organizations and industries.

Joint Degree Opportunities

When applying to the Monterey Institute, prospective students may pursue one of our specialized joint degree programs:  

Joint degree students earn two degrees in five semesters in a highly structured and sequenced set of courses.  If you are interested in applying for a joint degree at the Monterey Institute, please contact one of our Enrollment Managers.

Dual Degree Opportunities

Dual degree programs provide a flexible option for receiving two degrees. Current students may pursue a second Master's degree at the Institute by completing a minimum of 30 credits in-residence, in addition to the credits required for the first degree. Students must complete all core components of the second degree. The earlier the decision is made to pursue a second degree, the more smoothly the requirements may be integrated across both programs. Students may apply to a second degree at the Institute at the Admissions Office.

Students are encouraged to consult their Academic Advisor for more information on dual degree program options and requirements.
