Overview

At this Public Administration - Public and Nonprofit Management dual-degree option of University of Baltimore, you can earn both degrees concurrently by completing all required courses over a three- to four-year period.

Key facts:

  • You'll complete a minimum of 78 credits in the law school and a minimum of 30 credits in the M.P.A. program.
  • The UB School of Law recognizes 9 credits of the M.P.A. requirements as transferable to its program (or 6 credits if the degrees are not completed within the same academic year), and the College of Public Affairs reciprocally allows the transfer of up to 12 credits of law school courses to satisfy coursework requirements in the M.P.A. program. Specifically, the M.P.A. program agrees to waive PUAD 627: Legal and Ethical Environment of Public Administration for students in the dual-degree program as well as 9 specialization credit hours.
  • You'll begin master’s program work during the summer preceding enrollment in the law school or during the summer after finishing the first year of law school, but you can't take courses within the master’s program during the fall and spring semesters of the first year of law school.
