The Harris School and the Divinity School offer a combined degree program that enables students to graduate with both a Master of Public Policy and a Master of Divinity. Students in this program take the seven required core courses, plus seven electives for a total of 14 courses in public policy, instead of the usual 18, and 22 in the divinity program, instead of the usual 27. They also are obligated to complete the "teaching parish" component required for MDiv students. The program allows students to complete both degrees within a total of four academic years; both degrees must be awarded in the same quarter.
This program provides an opportunity for students to combine their interest in examining pertinent issues related to the church as a public institution with their interest in public and urban ministry. Students who wish to participate in this program must be admitted to both the Harris School and the Divinity School, and typically spend the first two years at the Divinity School. Students already admitted to one of the Schools may apply during their first year for admission to the other.
