JD/Master of Public Administration

A partnership of law and public administration is essential to effective government. The public administration program educates individuals to work in government agencies, the nonprofit sector and in organizations that conduct substantial business with government agencies.

The highly respected Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse, where students pursue the M.P.A., is the oldest academic training program of its kind in the United States. Since its establishment in 1924, the Maxwell School's Master of Public Administration Program and its outstanding faculty have greatly influenced the growth and development of public administration and policy. Maxwell School alumni worldwide work in federal, state, and local governments; nonprofit agencies; private firms; and colleges and universities.

Students may obtain the J.D. and M.P.A. in three years instead of the four necessary to earn both degrees independently. Learn more.
