“The Joint Degree Program encourages students to think outside the box and generates new ideas” — JDP Faculty Director Sara McLanahan
The Joint Degree Program in
The School collaborates with five social science departments to offer the Joint Degree Program in Social Policy (JDP). Applicants joint with Population Studies must apply to the Joint Degree Program at the same time. Applicants to Sociology can apply to both programs together or choose to apply after being admitted to the Sociology program. Students from Psychology, Economics, and Politics first apply to one of the participating departments and later apply for the JDP program. Details about admission can be found on the JDP page.
