Planning Ahead: Combined/Dual Degrees
Students entering school for the first time can push beyond pursuing a bachelor’s degree by choosing a Combined or Dual/Sequential degree, which includes a bachelor’s degree and a master’s or doctorate.
Students in D’Youville’s Combined degree programs graduate in less time with complex skill sets ready for the job market.

This moves students through a natural progression of in-depth, focused study and maximizes their college investment. Currently, D’Youville’s Dual degree programs include a bachelor’s degree paired with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, Doctor of Pharmacy, or Doctor of Physical Therapy.
