You can earn a degree and a certificate, or two master's degrees. For Villanova undergraduates, we offer many Combined Bachelor/Master's Programs. Most programs also offer graduate certificates that can be earned in conjunction with a master's degree or as a standalone option.

Generally, students enrolled in master’s degree programs complete all the requirements for their degree in two years, although students are permitted up to six years to complete their degree. Students enrolled in a PhD program are permitted up to eight years to complete their degree.
