The dual degree MS/MPA consists of 57 credits and can be completed by full-time students in four semesters. Students have five years to complete degree requirements, however, and most students earn the degree by attending part-time. Courses are offered in the late afternoon and evenings.
Course of Study
The program consists of core courses shared with other master's level students in nursing and public administration, courses in the specialization, and cognate electives. One elective may be chosen from any of the many graduate programs offered at Hunter College and three electives are chosen from the School of Public Affairs at Baruch College.
