The Wagner School and NYU undergraduate College of Arts and Science (CAS) offer a combined degree program for students to earn the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Public Administration degrees in five years. Students may complete a maximum 28 of the 60 credits required for the Wagner MPA while they are still undergraduates. These 28 credits should include the five Wagner core courses or the designated CAS equivalents, along with two specialization courses/program core courses.
Students must earn a grade of B or better in each course taken at CAS in order for the credits to be transferred to the MPA.
Students must enroll in the joint degree program while they are still matriculated in the College of Arts and Science, and they must formally apply to the MPA prior to their graduation from CAS.
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.
