Public Administration and Law (J.D./M.P.A.)
The College of Law and Askew School of Public Administration & Policy’s joint degree program in Law and Public Administration, J.D./M.P.A., permits completion of both degree programs concurrently. Interested applicants must first begin their study at the College of Law. Once enrolled in the first-year law curriculum, they will complete all necessary documentation for the application process through the Askew School of Public Administration & Policy and a joint-degree application by the end of the first year of law school. All required documents should be returned to the College of Law Office of Admissions.
For joint-degree program applicants, admission to the Public Administration program requires a bachelor’s degree, an upper division (junior and senior) grade point
average of 3.0 or better, and either a minimum combined score of 1000 on the verbal and quantitative portions of the GRE or a score of 160 or higher on the LSAT.
