The School of Diplomacy and International Relations participates in graduate dual degree programs with the Seton Hall School of Law, the Stillman School of Business, the Department of Public Administration and the Program in Strategic Communications. Each program has its own admission process. Applicants for a dual degree program must be accepted separately to each program, either at the time of initial enrollment or during the first semester.
Once enrolled, students should consult with academic advisers in both programs to coordinate their curriculum. Dual degree course requirements for each program are listed below.
The Department of Public Administration in the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Diplomacy and International Relations offer a dual degree program that combines the Master of Arts in Diplomacy and International Relations with the Master of Public Administration. The dual degree prepares professionals equipped to respond to the challenges of public sector administration in a global environment. The joint degree can be completed in 60 credits, instead of the 84 credits required to complete the two programs separately.
Students apply independently to each degree program, preferably indicating at the time of application that they intend to follow the joint M.A./M.P.A. program if admitted. Applicants for a dual degree program must be accepted separately to each program, either at the time of initial enrollment or during the first semester of study.
