BA-MPA and BA-MUP with College of Arts and Science

Deep passions don’t tend to be patient. Yes, you know a four-year liberal arts education makes an excellent foundation for a job in public service. But, you also know a master’s degree can give you the professional skills and tools you’ll need to build a career with impact. Together, it’s long road. But it doesn’t have to be. Set your desire to make the world a better place into motion with a BA-MPA or BA-MUP offered by NYU Wagner in partnership with the NYU College of Arts and Science (CAS). 

CAS students who are least three semesters (one for transfer students) into their undergraduate degree can apply for dual degree program. Interested? Submit the Pre-Application to the College of Arts and Science for consideration.
