Dual Program Options

Interdisciplinary learning and collaboration are core values of the Penn Nursing experience. That’s why we offer students the opportunity to pursue dual degrees across the university.

All dual degree programs require students to submit separate applications to both programs although once accepted to the MSN program we share application materials with other programs as possible.

Master of Bioethics (MBE)

Students in the Health Leadership program who have an interest in topics and issues in contemporary bioethics have the option to complete a 14 CU dual MSN/MBE program.

Master of Public Health (MPH)

Students complete ten MPH courses - nine core courses and one MPH elective - along with their MSN program requirements, leading to a joint MSN/MPH degree.

Master in Law (ML) - Health Law Track

Health Leadership master’s students interested in legal issues, regulation, and healthcare reform are encouraged to apply to Penn’s Master in Law (ML) program and will graduate with a 14 CU joint MSN/ML.
