Dual and Double Degree Programs

Earn 2 degrees at the same time.

Complete two separate master's degrees at the same time through one of these unique program offerings.

How does it work?

Start by identifying one of the established dual or double degree programs available at Binghamton University. Apply to both degree programs separately. By carefully structuring the sequence of courses, recognizing comparable course offerings and using courses in one program to count as electives in the other, students can complete both degree programs in less time. Generally, a dual or double degree program can be completed in 3 years of full-time study, rather than the traditional 4 years (2 years per degree) that it would take to earn the degrees separately.
