Undergraduate degree programs
An undergraduate degree is the first higher education qualification you study for when you continue your education after High School. In the US and Canadian university systems, the most common undergraduate degree is a bachelor's degree, awarded after four academic years of successful university study. Many universities offer pre-professional programs at undergraduate level (e.g. pre-law, pre-medicine).

Dual degree programs
A dual degree (also called 'double degree', 'joint degree', or 'combined degree') allows you to earn two degrees, either at the same university or at different universities, in less time than it would take to complete them separately. Commonly, a dual degree combines an undergraduate and graduate program.
