Students can apply a number of semester hours jointly to each degree, reducing the total number of hours to earn both degrees separately (and the cost!). The number of hours ranges from nine to eighteen hours, subject to the approval of Graduate Advisers/Directors from both programs. For the MPA, the contacts are Karolyn Field and Dr. David Coursey.
Students can propose their own dual degree program.
Students must apply separately to each program and submit a separate program of work (viz., proposed class schedule) for each degree. Existing students can add a dual degree if they are admitted to the second program before completing beyond 24 credit hours in the MPA. Students and applicants interested in a dual degree are strongly advised to contact the Graduate Adviser for details.
