Dual-title degree programs allow students to pursue an integrated graduate degree in a targeted area of focus within the context of their primary degree program. 

Dual-titles options typically represent areas of research that transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries.  As such, dual-title programs draw students and faculty from multiple departments, creating an interdisciplinary community with shared interests.
