Degree Types

Below you will find the wide variety of degrees offered at the Curry School ranging from our bachelors degrees (and even a minor) to our doctoral programs.

In addition, you can see that we have a portfolio of non-degree offerings that include certificates, course series that are designed to fulfill Virginia endorsement requirements, as well as workshops.

Dual Degree

The Curry School offers dual degree programs with 4 other schools at UVA: Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, Darden School of Business, College of Arts & Sciences, and School of Engineering and Applied Science.

PhD/MPP: Doctorate of Philosophy in Education Policy/Master of Public Policy

Students with an interest in the PhD in Education Policy program at the Curry School of Education who do not have a masters degree in education policy or public policy, are strongly encouraged to apply to the Master’s Public Policy (MPP) at U.Va.’s Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. The dual degree program provides students with strong research skills and an applied policy focus. Dual degree students take courses at both schools for their first two years and immediately begin working on research projects. Following completion of the MPP at the end of the second year, students finish out course work in the PhD program and complete a dissertation typically within a total of 4-5 years. The dual degree provides a very strong foundation in public policy and applied research in Education Policy (Current student spotlight). A separate application into the MPP program is required.

B/MT: Bachelor of (Arts or Science) / Master of Teaching

Curry partners with the College of Arts & Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) to offer B/MT degrees. Undergraduates enrolled in Teacher Education earn two degrees: a Bachelor’s (BA or BS) from the College of Arts and Sciences or in Engineering Science (BS) from SEAS and a Master of Teaching degree from the Curry School of Education. Both degrees are awarded simultaneously after all program requirements have been met. Students in the B/MT programs are advanced to graduate status at the end of the 4th year prior to student teaching in the 5th year. Those who plan carefully can complete their combined program of studies in fewer than 5 years. To accelerate the program, students must enroll in a three-week summer session prior to student teaching. You may be able to earn your bachelor’s degree and master's degree in four years, as part of the University’s 3+1 Program, if you have advanced standing in the University.
