Wheaton provides multiple avenues for students to explore graduate school study during and after their time at Wheaton.


Dual Degree Programs

Dual degree programs permit a student to begin graduate-level study in marketing communications, engineering, and optometry before graduating from Wheaton. A student will take one to three additional years to earn a second degree in one of these fields; the Wheaton A.B. is normally awarded at the same time as the second degree.
