We offer students the opportunity of earning a joint or dual degree with a number of other departments and schools at Tufts, and with Boston College. Combined degrees are available only to students in the M.A. program.

A dual degree consists of two master's degrees awarded for work done in distinct disciplines by two schools of Tufts University, or Boston College. UEP has dual degree programs with:
Students electing a combined (joint) degree option must be accepted by both departments and are expected to meet the requirements set by each program. A student may submit one application to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences for the combined degree option. Students wishing to pursue a dual degree must submit a separate application for each school and check off the dual degree option.
Application procedures for each combined and dual degree program are detailed on the sub-pages linked above.
