The joint J.D./M.P.A. degree program has been designed to promote integration between the fields of law and public administration. Covering areas such as public management, policy analysis, public finance and human resources management, it enables students to earn both degrees in, at most, four years of full-time study, rather than the usual five. The program is designed so that a maximum of six courses may be applicable to both degrees. Recipients of joint J.D./M.P.A. degrees hold professional credentials for a broad range of careers in government, consulting, teaching, research and law.
