About

The Public Service Management Law program from DePaul University allows a student to complete two graduate degrees concurrently in less time than it takes to finish each program individually.

Overview

Before beginning the Public Service Management Law program from DePaul University, both full-time and part-time law students must complete the required first-year curriculum and achieve a minimum grade point average of 3.00 in those courses. Full-time students earn 29 credits the first year, while part-time students must earn at least 29 credits within the first three semesters of the law program.

Traditional JD students must complete 86 credit hours to graduate from the College of Law. However, under a joint degree program, a student earns the JD degree after completing a minimum of 76 credit hours. The College of Law applies up to 10 credits toward the JD degree for work completed in the other graduate degree program. ​

Credit hours are eligible to be applied only after completion of the required first year JD curriculum described above. A joint degree student may not receive credit for courses that create a redundancy in coursework.​

Programme Structure

  • Traditional public service management students must complete 52 hours to receive the MS degree. However, under the joint degree program, students are required to complete a minimum of 36 credit hours. The Public Service Management program will accept up to 16 hours of credit for work completed in the College of Law.
  • In addition to the core requirements, specific courses are required for the various public service management concentrations. Please visit the Public Service Management catalog for complete program requirements.
