How do I do a joint degree?
As a joint degree candidate, a student can earn two degrees in two semesters fewer than if the degrees were pursued separately. With the exception of the M.P.P./J.D. program, this is three years.
Candidates must apply, and be admitted to, each school separately. Candidates can apply simultaneously at the outset or to the second program once they have matriculated in one of the programs at Yale.
Candidates are expected to spend the first year in Global Affairs and one semester of the second year in the partner program. During the final year, students register with each program for one semester, although they may take courses from both programs either term.
