Dual Masters - Public Administration & Criminal Justice

Course Discussion The School of Public Affairs offers a dual degree in Public Administration and Criminal Justice.  The fields of public administration and criminal justice are closely connected.  While the MPA is a generalist degree designed to prepare students for a variety of positions in public and nonprofit management and policy analysis, the MCJ prepares graduates to work in criminal justice organizations.   

This dual degree provides an opportunity for students to complete both programs in a shorter period of time.  Graduates will be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to work in a number of public service or criminal justice settings. 

Students pursuing the dual degree program must apply separately and be admitted to each of the programs.  It is possible for students currently admitted to one program to apply after admission to the other.  The MPA and MCJ Directors serve as advisors for this program.  Interested applicants should contact one of the directors prior to making an application.
