Thank you for your interest in our Master of Public Administration program.

Current JMU undergraduate students can apply to participate in the five-year format of the MPA program. In the five-year program, JMU undergraduates may complete their undergraduate degree and the MPA program in five years by meeting admissions requirements of the MPA program and carefully planning their program of study with the MPA director. The five-year MPA program requires 36 graduate credits in academic course work and a professional internship. Students interested in the five-year MPA should meet with the MPA director early in their sophomore year to officially declare their intent to pursue the program.
