BA-MPA with Gallatin School of Individualized Study

Students at the NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study already have a reputation for their vision, their drive, and their unique perspectives: multi-disciplinary study? No problem. Operationalizing grand imaginings? Easy. If that’s the case, then NYU Wagner’s got a challenge for you: join us for our BA-MPA program in collaboration with NYU Gallatin.

Pursuing a public administration degree with us means you’ll get to funnel your undergraduate explorations directly into a professionally-focused master’s degree that is constantly looking at the intersections of ideas, needs, and the greater good. Furthermore, you’ll get to translate your philosophies into actions—and impact.

Admission to the dual-degree program is open to Gallatin students who have completed 72 credits toward their BA degree and have earned a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Interested? Submit the Pre-Application to the Gallatin Office of Advising for consideration.
