JMU Major: Public Policy and Administration
The department also offers a five-year masters program. Students interested in graduating in five years with both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Public Administration degree can do so through the use of reserve graduate credit. Our faculty members combine practical experience with scholarly preparation. Our internship program allows students to receive on-the-job experience while completing their degrees. Our graduates manage cities and towns, work for federal, state and local government, manage non-profit organizations, and serve as policy analysts in both the public and private sectors.
