Combined Bachelors and Masters Option
This Combined Bachelors/Masters program allows you to complete a Political Science B.A. or Public Administration B.S. along with a Masters of Public Administration (MPA). You are able to complete both degrees in 5 years rather than the typical 6 years needed to complete the two degrees separately.
Accelerated Bachelors to Law Degree (3+3) Option
This Accelerated Bachelors to Law Degree allows you to complete a Political Science B.A. while getting a jumpstart on law school. You complete both degrees in six years rather than seven — a big savings in time and money.
