Master of Divinity / Master of Science in Public Policy and Management Joint Degree
The Heinz School of Public Policy Management at Carnegie Mellon University and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary offer a joint degree program leading to the two degrees of Master of Divinity (M.Div.) and Master of Science in Public Policy and Management (MSPPM). The joint degree program seeks to prepare persons as experts in urban policy and management as well as theology in order to establish a group of specialists ready to serve the church as practitioners and consultants through a combination of competencies.
Through the recognition by each institution of work performed in the other institution for advanced standing, the program can be completed in four years. Normal completion of each degree program independently would require five years. Admission is determined separately by each institution.
