Degree Requirements

The number of credits required to obtain the dual degrees is 112 as 12 credits from each program can be transferred to the other. Pursuing the dual degrees, as opposed to pursuing the degrees independently, offers the advantage of reducing credit requirements by 24 credits. Although this is a dual program, the J.D. and M.P.A. degrees are awarded separately by their degree-granting institutions upon successful completion of respective degree requirements.
