SIPA/Hertie School of Governance Dual Degree Program

Format: Campus

Program Description:

SIPA offers students completing either an MIA or MPA the opportunity to complete one year of study at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin. In the time that it takes to complete one degree, these students will receive two Masters, one from each institution. After spending the first year, and completing the core curriculum in New York, students will pursue an area of specialization in Berlin. The Hertie School of Governance is one of Europe's distinguished professional schools for public policy, and offers access to the attractions of one of the most diverse and interesting cities in Europe. SIPA is currently able to provide considerable funding for selected SIPA/Hertie dual degree applicants, significantly reducing the cost of tuition, fees and living expenses during the year in Berlin.
