Self-Initiated Dual Degree in Japanese Studies and Another UM Graduate Degree Program
The Center for Japanese Studies welcomes students who wish to combine interdisciplinary training in Japanese Studies with another graduate degree at the University of Michigan. Any graduate degree except MBA and JD degrees which have a pre-established dual/joint degree program can be combined with the CJS MA degree. In recent years, students have combined the CJS MA degree with degrees in information/library science, public policy, health sciences, and engineering, among others.
Students who are interested in pursing a self-initiated dual degree are encouraged to contact the CJS Academic Services Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org early in the process for consultation. Students usually begin one graduate program and apply to the second graduate program in a subsequent term. Students applying for self-initiated dual degree follow the same admission deadlines and submit the same application materials as new students.
