School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA)

Dual Degree and Certificate

Students accepted to the International and Comparative Politics Master of Arts (ICP M.A.) program and the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program may complement their course of study with a variety of interdisciplinary opportunities. This includes a dual degree with the ICP M.A. and MPA degree, the Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies, the Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), and the Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Administration and Leadership. Students planning to pursue the dual degree with MPA need to submit a separate application to the MPA program, and, upon acceptance to both degree programs, will have an advising appointment with the program directors of each. 

Students seeking advanced coursework in international affairs who do not desire a formal M.A. degree should pursue the Graduate Certificate in Regional Studies, coordinated by the Master of Humanities Program
