This dual degree is intended to enhance the student's career possibilities in law, government, public interest organizations, health care, and related fields.The program seeks to encourage interested and qualified students to broaden and enrich their professional training by concurrent and closely related studies in a wide range of relevant disciplines.The reciprocal acceptance of course credits by each school enables the student to complete the requirements for both degrees in four years rather than the usual five years were each degree pursued separately.Dual Degree Course of Study Students may still choose from one of the three areas of specializa-tion offered by the public administration program: administrative management in government, in health care, or in not-for-profit organizations. However, students must make separate application to the MPA and JD programs and gain independent admission to both programs before pursuing the joint program.*Students enrolled in the JD/MPA typically complete 127 credits; 39 in the Public Administration department and 88 credits in residence in the Law School. Up to ten (10) Public Administration credits may be applied toward the satisfaction of the required Law School credits, provided these credits were earned after the stu-dent matriculated in the Law School while up to six (6) Law School credits may be applied to the Public Administration Program at any time. Upon fulfillment of the requirements for the joint degree program, the student is awarded both the JD and MPA degrees. It is also possible to undertake the joint program on a part-time basis, with adjustments made in the sequence of courses as may be appropriate and required.*MPA students must submit an application to the joint program prior to the completion of 12 MPA credits. The exact course of study will be determined after joint consultation with the student's MPA and law school advisers.
