JD/MA in Urban Affairs Dual Degree Program

A dual JD/MA in Urban Affairs degree program is offered jointly by the USF School of Law and the USF College of Arts and Sciences.

Students MPA

With a Master of Arts in Urban Affairs and Juris Doctor from USF, graduates are uniquely prepared to be effective and ethical leaders in urban policy and community organizing. This four-year program is designed to prepare law school graduates with the knowledge and hands-on experience of applied urban research and community engagement and organizing. A comprehensive background in urban history, political dynamics, and sociology is combined with tools for community-based research, policy design, policy analysis, and implementation.

The dual degree program leverages the advantages of USF’s location in one of the most dynamic urban environments in the United States. It provides students with the opportunity to build their legal and research careers through immersion experiences in San Francisco and other Bay Area cities.

The dual degree program provides a cost and time savings of more than a year. Students may begin their course of study in either program. Read more about the curriculum
