Dual degrees
The Connell School of Nursing offers two dual degree programs in cooperation with other graduate and professional schools at Boston College. Faculty from both schools work with you to design an individualized program of study. Course work is organized so that electives fulfill requirements for both degrees, minimizing credit hours and time to completion. You must apply separately to both the nursing program and your second program.

The MS/MBA offers an MS in nursing and a master of business administration (MBA) from Boston College's Carroll School of Management. Students who are interested should contact the graduate office at 617-552-4928.

The MS/MA offers an MS in nursing and a master of arts (MA) degree in pastoral ministry from Boston College's School of Theology and Ministry.
