Dual Masters Degree Programs | SPEA
The School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) is well-known for its interdisciplinary approach to teaching, learning, and problem-solving. That interdisciplinary spirit is especially evident in our dual degree programs, which allow students to combine a Master of Public Affairs (MPA) or Master of Science in Environmental Science (MSES) with a second professional degree or area study.
These programs, which are offered through partnerships with other Indiana University schools and departments, build bridges between disciplines, broaden students’ skills, and create opportunities for dialogue within the university community and the world.
