MA/MPA Critical & Curatorial Studies/Public Administration


The Master of Arts (MA) in Fine Arts with a concentration in Critical & Curatorial Studies/Master of Public Administration (MPA) joint degree program takes advantage of overlapping interests and synergies that can arise from mutual interests in non-profit management and curatorial studies. Students in the Critical & Curatorial Studies track of the MA program will benefit from the broad managerial focus of the MPA program, while students in the MPA program can enhance their expertise in an important area of non-profit endeavor. Efficiency is attained by allowing students to complete both programs in a more expeditious manner. Taken separately, the two programs require a total of 73 semester hours of work, while the joint program requires a total of 58 hours. Completion of both programs should improve students' initial job prospects as well as their ability to advance in their chosen field.
