Interdisciplinary and Dual Degree Programs

UEP/Fletcher Dual Degree

The Fletcher School offers a broad program of professional education in international affairs. Its curriculum covers international law and organization, diplomatic history and international political relations, international economic relations, and international political institutions and systems. UEP and the Fletcher School offer a dual-degree program focusing on international environmental policy. This program provides an opportunity for a select number of highly qualified students to earn both a Master of Arts (M.A.) in urban and environmental policy and planning and a Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy (M.A.L.D.) at the Fletcher School in three years. Each degree normally requires two years. The dual-degree program responds to growing student and professional demand for graduate education in international environmental policy. It is designed to prepare students for careers in economic and development institutions, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations concerned with international problems affecting the physical environment such as acid rain, global warming, offshore oil drilling, soil erosion, deforestation, biodiversity, waterways pollution, and chemical contamination.

Interested students must submit separate applications to each school indicating a preference for the dual degree. Each school reviews candidates based on its own requirements and criteria. The candidate's admission to UEP is not affected by the decision of the Fletcher School. Tuition and fees will be assessed and paid to each school based on the semester of enrollment. Students will be eligible for financial assistance based on current policies at each school. For detailed information on the requirements for the Fletcher M.A.L.D., please contact the Fletcher School, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155.
