Students enrolled in the PhD program in social policy may elect to pursue a joint master's degree in Social Policy & Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, with the program director's permission as well as the agreement of the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program. This masters in passing degree option replaces the master's degree in social policy and can only be earned in a semester prior to the conferral of the doctoral degree in social policy. The joint degree provides students an opportunity to mesh the Heller School’s social policy research and analytical training with issues that affect women and gender. The joint MA is for a select group of students interested in pursuing an additional interdisciplinary perspective. Students in the program must be willing to do additional course work, take part in a proseminar, and write a master's paper.
