Combined and Accelerated Programs

The Wilder School offers several combined and accelerated degree programs, providing exciting opportunities for interdisciplinary and cooperative study that integrates knowledge across traditional academic disciplines and levels of undergraduate and graduate study.

The Combined B.A. and M.P.A. program allows selected students to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Master of Public Administration in a minimum of five years by taking certain master’s-level courses during the senior year of their undergraduate program.

The Wilder School also offers two dual degree programs in cooperation with the University of Richmond. The Master of Urban Studies and Planning and Juris Doctor and the Master of Public Administration and Juris Doctor are both four-year dual degree programs.
