Master of Public Administration and Master of Urban Planning

M.P.A./M.U.P. Combined Program

This program is designed for the student with career goals that center on assuming administrative and management responsibilities in urban planning and urban affairs. It combines into 3 years (excluding the 1-year internship required for the M.P.A. City and County Management Fellows curriculum) the normal course work required for the 2-year Master of Urban Planning degree and the 2-year Master of Public Administration degree. The program offers students experience not only in public policy management, but also in administration with particular expertise in planning the sustainability of communities.

A student must meet admission requirements of both programs, but only needs to submit one application. The M.P.A./M.U.P. dual degree program is open to those who have earned baccalaureate degrees and whose undergraduate academic records indicate that they have the capacity to complete these graduate programs.
