Accelerated Programs

B.A./M.P.A. Accelerated Degree Program - (See Dual-Degree Programs under Registration and Course Information in the Academic Policies and Procedures section.) The B.A./M.P.A. accelerated degree program allows students majoring in economics, urban studies, or political science to take up to four master of public administration (M.P.A.) courses while completing their bachelor of arts (B.A.) degrees. Interested undergraduates apply to the accelerated program with the M.P.A. program graduate director during the junior year, and formally apply to the M.P.A. program for regular admission as graduate-level students in the senior year. M.P.A. courses taken as an undergraduate are charged at the (lower) undergraduate tuition rate and may be counted toward both the B.A. and M.P.A. degree requirements.

The Four-Year Law and M.P.A. Program, administered jointly with Rutgers Law School in Camden, leads to the juris doctor (J.D.) and M.P.A. degrees. Students interested in this course of study must be accepted independently by both Rutgers Law School in Camden and the Graduate School-Camden's Department of Public Policy and Administration.  Students matriculate first in the Law School, and begin taking M.P.A. courses in the second year of the program.

M.A./M.P.A. Dual-Degree Program - Rutgers University-Camden's graduate programs in criminal justice and public administration offer a 48-credit dual curriculum leading to the master of arts (M.A.) and M.P.A. degrees. Students must apply to and be accepted into both programs. For course selection, admitted students must consult with the graduate directors of both programs.
