The Batten School offers several Dual Degree programs with other professional schools at the University of Virginia. The dual degree programs allow students to complete the two programs in less time, so they can quickly put their new skills and knowledge into action.
With our Dual Degree programs, you can take full advantage of the fact that several of the nation's top-ranked schools are located here at UVa. Each of the dual degree programs includes the entire first year of the MPP curriculum and the first year curriculum of participating schools.
If you are applying for any of the five dual degrees that we offer, remember that you must apply to both schools separately and gain admission to both schools separately before you can be admitted to the dual degree program. Additional admissions information for each program is contained in the description of each respective dual degree.
We’ve reinvented the Master of Public Policy, creating a new program that makes the most of the realities and possibilities of a complex, fluid world. We’ve focused on how leadership works, why context matters in decision making, and what action leads to tangible results. The Batten MPP: It’s essential for anyone who wants to lead more competitive, resilient, and fair societies.
