Dual Bachelor of Arts in an SMPA Major and Master of Arts or Master of Professional Studies Degree Programs
The School of Media and Public Affairs, in cooperation with the Graduate School of Political Management, offer two options for a dual bachelor’s/master’s degree:
- Bachelor of Arts with an SMPA major and Master of Arts in the field of media and strategic communication
- Bachelor of Arts with an SMPA major and Master of Professional Studies in the field of political management
The program allows students to take 9 graduate credits as part of their undergraduate program, thereby decreasing the number of credits normally required for the master's degree. All requirements for both degrees must be fulfilled.
Students interested in the dual degree program should confer with the department's graduate adviser early in their junior year . Visit the program website for additional information.
