TWU and Belhaven University’s Dual Degree program is a rare opportunity to earn two master’s degrees at once in less time and at a lower cost than if taken individually.

The Dual Degree program gives you twice the opportunity to build on your IT and leadership skills with the unique chance to graduate with TWU’s Master of Arts in Leadership and Belhaven University’s Master of Science in Information Technology Management.

TWU (Canada) and Belhaven (USA), both accredited and respected North American faith-based universities, have created a merged program on the beautiful TWU campus in British Columbia. Complete two master’s degrees with fewer courses in as little as 20 months, and you’ll spend 30% less than if you were to take the two master’s degrees separately.

The Dual Degree program has additional benefits for international students:

  • Eligible for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) in Canada
  • Significantly increased chances of successfully applying for permanent residency (PR within the PGWP timeframe after graduation)
