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.


Key facts:

  • 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.
