Typically, a dual-degree program reduces the requirements for doing two full-time programs by approximately one academic year because fewer credits are needed for each of the two degrees. If you are interested in pursuing a dual degree with another Columbia graduate school, you must apply separately to the school in question during your first year at CSSW. You will also need to discuss your academic plan for completing requirements at both schools with the Manager of Enrollment and Student Services, Cheiku Camara (cbc2117@columbia.edu). To update your student record once you have been accepted into the other school, please notify our Office of Student Services at sw-studentservices@columbia.edu.
