The Department of Public Policy and Administration offers several accelerated degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Accelerated degree programs enable students accepted to both programs to transfer credits from one degree toward the other, reducing the time required for completion. An accelerated BA/MPA option allows exceptional undergraduate majors in Urban Studies, Political Science and Economics to fast-track into the MPA program and complete both degrees in as little as five years (for full-time students).
