Dual Degrees

Atlantis dual degree with the Maxwell School at Syracuse University

Study in Syracuse and Berlin

The Atlantis dual degree is a joint programme offered by the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs in Syracuse, New York, and the Hertie School. 

Atlantis students complete the first year of their studies in Syracuse either in the Master in International Relations (MAIR) or Master of Public Administration (MPA) programme, and finish the dual degree at the Hertie School either in the Master of Public Policy (MPP) or Master of International Affairs (MIA) programme. Atlantis dual degree students may not take a gap year and thus cannot participate in the Hertie School's Professional Year programme.
