A joint Master's Degree

  • Print


Alyssa Walker :
Want to complete two degrees simultaneously? Spend less time than it would take to complete two degrees separately and earn a joint master's.
Many joint master's degree programs offer international options. They have international partner universities with international teaching staff who are experts in their fields. The program itself focuses on structured mobility-it's designed for you to travel between institutions to attain your degree.
A few things you should know: there's a heavy workload and you need to have the motivation to keep up with your grades. It's a lot of work-but if you have a clear vision of how you want to use it, then it's worth it.
Up for the challenge? Let's take a closer look at why you should go for a joint master's degree and a case study.
1. Double your knowledge and experience
By taking a joint master's course, you get two degrees in two years from two different universities.
Typically, a dual master's degree would take four years. Depending on the fields you choose to combine, you have your double master's in two years. That's half the time. You also get to learn two different university systems. See #2.
2. Discover two different universities and countries
By splitting your study time between two institutions, you'll learn two different approaches to higher education-in two uniquely different places. You'll also gain the perspective of more than one academic advisor and more than one group of peers.
How does this translate? Double the culture, language, and perspective of earning a joint master's program, and double your professional network and career prospects.
3. Discover a new work environment
A dual degree is highly valued-as long as it's done right. What does this mean for you? Opportunity and employability.
If you want to work in a highly specialized field that combines at least two disciplines, international companies will seek you out upon graduation. You're also more likely to have a high sense of job satisfaction.
Another perk? Recognition for your studies in at least the two countries that you studied, if not more.
4. Case Study: Universita delgi Studi della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli
Among the famous buildings and stunning streets in Naples is the campus of Universita delgi Studi della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, where you have an amazing opportunity to pursue a joint master's degree.
The campus is part of the Erasmus + program, the EU's program that allows over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience, and volunteer abroad.
Established in 1991 to relieve overcrowding at a larger university in Naples, Universita delgi Studi della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli currently serves over thirty thousand students across 19 departments.
With programs in English and the opportunity to learn Italian, Universita delgi Studi della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli not only offers a rich cultural experience, but an intense academic one, too.
