Undergraduate/Graduate Dual Degree Pathway Programs
A dual degree pathway is a combination of two separate, approved degree programs. Dual degree pathways that combine undergraduate and graduate programs at the University enable undergraduate students to complete a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree within 5 years. Dual degree pathways can be offered within one department and discipline or can be offered across departments, schools, or colleges.
The University currently offers 11 dual undergraduate/graduate degree pathways, many of which have been in existence for several years, and Honors students have long benefited from the ability to pursue dual bachelor’s/graduate degrees. By streamlining the processes for creating additional Double Dawgs pathways and making them available to all qualified students, we aim to significantly increase the number of linked undergraduate/graduate degree pathways UGA offers. Details about the implementation of the Double Dawgs Program are outlined below.
