Applicants must satisfy the admission requirements of both the Department of Public Administration and Policy (DPAP)/SPA and Washington College of Law (WCL). Admission criteria are the same as those for the Public Policy (MPP). However, students who have been admitted to WCL will not be required to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Students may begin their studies in SPA in their first semester of the LLM program. Admission to either the MPP or LLM program does not guarantee admission to the other.
Dual Degree Requirements
45 credits hours of approved graduate coursework, including 27 credit hours of MPP coursework in SPA, and 18 credit hours of law coursework in WCL
MPP Degree Requirements
39 credits hours of approved graduate coursework, including 27 credit hours of MPP coursework in SPA, and 12 credit hours from WCL. At least 24 credit hours for the MPP must be taken in approved SPA courses.
