The combined Juris Doctor/Master of Public Administration is available for students who plan to use their law degree in federal, state or local government agencies and not-for-profit or quasi-governmental organizations. Nine of the graduate credits, courses 600 level and above, may be applied toward the J.D. degree if the degrees are completed concurrently. If the MPA is completed after the JD, only six credits will be applied to the law degree, and 12 of the law credits may be used to satisfy M.P.A. requirements.
