Double Degree Programs

At the UW-Madison it is possible to simultaneously pursue two graduate degree programs. Graduate School policy allows some "double counting" of course work, but no more than one-fourth of the credits being offered in the requirements of one Master's degree can be used for the requirements of any other Master's level degree. In addition, four special arrangements have been developed in the Graduate School for double degrees:

  • Public Affairs and International Public Affairs (administered by the LaFollette School of Public Affairs, Observatory Hill Office Building, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI 53706)
  • Water Resources Management (administered by the Water Resources Management Program, Institute for Environmental Studies, 64 Science Hall, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI 53706)
  • Geography (administered by the Department of Geography, M383 Science Hall, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI 53706)
  • Landscape Architecture (administered by the Department of Landscape Architecture, 25 Agricultural Hall, University of Wisconsin- Madison, Madison, WI 53706)

Interested students should consult with faculty in these programs areas, as well as with the Department of Urban and Regional Planning.
