Cool dual degree program ideas?

Hi everyone! I was wondering if you guys have any insight on unique dual degree combinations that colleges offer? I'm super interested in finding a program that combines different fields of study but I'm not sure where to start looking. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Hi there! There are certainly some unique dual degree programs available at various colleges that combine different fields of study. Here are a few interesting examples:

1. Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design (BRDD) offer a dual degree program that allows students to combine liberal arts and fine arts/design education. Students earn a Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) from Brown and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) from RISD in five years.

2. Dual degree programs in Engineering and Liberal Arts are available at several institutions, including Columbia University's 3-2 Engineering Program, where you spend three years at a liberal arts college followed by two years at Columbia's engineering school, resulting in both a B.A. and a B.S. degree.

3. The University of Pennsylvania offers the Huntsman Program, which combines international studies and business. In this program, students pursue a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies from the College of Arts and Sciences and a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the Wharton School.

4. Science, Technology, and Society (STS) is a popular interdisciplinary program at schools like Stanford, MIT, and Yale. It combines the study of science and technology with their cultural, historical, and social contexts.

5. Georgetown University offers a dual degree program in Global Health and Law through their Walsh School of Foreign Service and Law Center, resulting in both a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service (BSFS) and a Juris Doctor (JD).

I recommend researching the specific universities and programs you're interested in to get a better understanding of their dual degree offerings. Make sure to consider program length, academic requirements, and application procedures, as dual degree programs can often be more competitive than traditional majors. Good luck in your search!
