The Public Administration MPA - Criminal Justice MS Dual Degree Track provides the opportunity for students to earn graduate degrees from two academic programs, the Master of Public Administration and the Master of Science in Criminal Justice, concurrently.

Students successfully completing this MPA/MS dual degree program will have the skills and analytical techniques for successful careers in both public administration and criminal justice. After successful completion of the MPA/MS dual degree program, students will receive two diplomas, one for the Public Administration MPA and one for the Criminal Justice MS.
