Degree Requirements:


A longstanding and popular joint degree exists between the Department of Public Administration of the Maxwell School for Citizenship and Public Affairs and Syracuse University’s College of Law. Students  prepare for a career at the nexus of law and public administration with the JD/MPA degree. Students must apply and be admitted to both programs separately and will complete the entire first year in the College of Law prior to matriculation into the MPA degree. Due to the calendar nature of the MPA program, this challenging joint degree, one of the oldest of its kind anywhere, can be completed in three years (the same time needed for a JD alone).

Students with general questions and inquiries concerning procedures regarding joint degrees should contact Courtney Abbott Hill, Associate Director for Student Life, Suite 220 College of Law (315-443-1146, cabbotth@law.syr.edu).
