BA-MPA and BA-MUP Program

The Wagner School, in partnership with several undergraduate divisions, offers combined degree programs for students to earn the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Public Administration or the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Urban Planning in less time than it would take to earn both degrees. Students may complete a maximum 28 of the 60 credits required for the graduate degree while they are still undergraduates. Students must earn a grade of B or better in each relevant course in order for the credits to give them advanced standing for the MPA or the MUP.

Students must enroll in the dual-degree program while they are still matriculated in their bachelor’s program, and they must formally apply to the MPA or MUP during their senior year.

Those students entering the program with less than two years of full-time, relevant work experience must complete the Professional Experience Requirement once matriculated at Wagner.
