"The interdisciplinary approach I experienced while at Sanford has been invaluable for my career and helped me become more of a generalist while also maintaining strong subject-matter expertise in environmental issues, where my interest lies. Sanford also enthusiastically supports joint-degree students and encourages them to voice their issue-specific knowledge gained from non-policy classes in the classroom."
Please note that separate applications are required for dual degree programs. Applications for the MEM and MF programs are available on the Nicholas School website. For application procedures on the MPP program, please refer to the MPP admissions page.
