Dual Degree Accelerated Program in MPA/Juris Doctor

New York City and White Plains Campuses 

Pace University’s Department of Public Administration and School of Law together make available to qualified students a dual-degree accelerated program intended to enhance career possibilities in law, government, public interest organizations, health care, and related fields. The reciprocal acceptance of course credits by each school enables students to complete the requirements for both degrees in four years rather than the usual five years were each degree pursued separately. Students must make separate application to both programs and gain independent admission to both before pursuing the joint program. Interested MPA students must submit their applications prior to the completion of 12 MPA credits. The exact course of study will be determined after joint consultation with an accepted student’s MPA and law school advisors.

For more information interested MPA students should see the Public Administration Department chair or Program Manager.
