Public Administration / Law, M.P.A. / J.D.
Degree Requirements M.P.A. (39 Hours) / J.D. (90 Hours)
This degree program is offered in cooperation with the Joseph F. Rice School of Law. It allows M.P.A. and J.D. students to receive “dual credit” for 21 semester hours of course work and acquire both a J.D. and a M.P.A. degree with fewer total credit hours than it would take to receive each degree independently. To be eligible, students must apply to, and be accepted by, both programs.
