Master of Public Administration Program Director: Robyn Mobbs, PhD
Master of Criminal Justice Program Director: Lorine Hughes, PhD
The fields of public administration and criminal justice may intersect and complement one another. This dual-degree program provides students with the opportunity to focus on crime and criminal justice issues while learning administrative skills necessary for success in variety of public service settings.
Students interested in pursuing the dual-degree program must apply to and be admitted to each of the programs. Students admitted to one program may choose to apply to the other program at a later date. Learn more about how to apply on the School of Public Affairs website.
Students enrolled in the dual-degree program must complete a total of 48 credit hours, including a minimum of 24 credit hours in each of the two programs (not counting Internship or Field Study if required). The total number of credit hours required to earn both degrees through this program is only 12 more than the total number of credit hours required for the Master of Public Administration or the Master of Criminal Justice by itself.
Interested students should contact the School of Public Affairs directly for specific information on course sequencing and requirements.
