Dual Degree Programs

For goal-oriented students who are dedicated to earning at least a Masters degree in environmental studies or forestry, the University of Richmond offers dual degree programs with Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment and Virginia Commonwealth University’s Environmental Studies Program. For the Duke program, students complete three years at Richmond and then two years at Duke; at the end of their fourth year, they receive their undergraduate degree from Richmond and at the end of their fifth year, they receive their Master's degree from Duke. For the VCU program, students remain on campus for all four years, but begin their graduate work at nearby VCU while completing their bachelor’s degree at UR.
