Dual Degree Programs
St. Catherine's students may earn dual bachelor's and graduate degrees in several professional areas. Dual degree programs are available in occupational therapy, physical therapy, and public health at St. Catherine University. Students enter the graduate program as undergraduate students in their senior year and complete the undergraduate degree while simultaneously making progress toward the graduate degree. After one year in the advanced program, a St. Catherine's bachelor's degree is awarded, and after one or two additional years, an advanced degree is conferred by St. Catherine University. Admission to St. Catherine University and completion of the prerequisite courses does not guarantee admission to the graduate program.
Students may also earn dual bachelor’s degrees with St. Catherine University and Washington University in St. Louis, MO. Students complete a special major at St. Catherine University and an engineering major at Washington University. Following two to three years of liberal arts and pre-professional course work at St. Catherine's, the student transfers to Washington University to earn the engineering degree.
