The Paul M. Hebert Law Center has a reputation for legal education that is both demanding and rewarding.

JD/MPA The JD/MPA allows students to earn a Juris Doctor and a Master of Public Administration concurrently. The degrees are offered through the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center and the E. J. Ourso College of Business. Admissions requirements for the dual JD/MPA program encompass those of both the LSU law center and the MPA program, as outlined by LSU Graduate School.

Degree Requirements Students may take the first year in the MPA program, completing 24 semester hours and then take three additional MPA hours in summer school. Students then spend their second year completing coursework in the LSU Law Center. Having completed a year of both the MPA and law courses, students can then take courses in both the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center and the MPA program. Law school courses will count toward the MPA program’s elective requirements. Alternatively, a student can also start the program by first attending law school and then taking the MPA courses. Students will work with faculty to plan a schedule permitting them to graduate the joint program in four years. For more on the Paul M. Hebert Law Center, visit

“LSU’s JD/MPA program was an excellent primer for my role in public service. I was challenged intellectually, and the faculty of the law school and Public Administration set a high standard for students in the class. Combining a legal and management education works hand-in-hand every day as a city manager. Management in the public sector requires a deft knowledge of the legal field to minimize an organization’s liability. The rigor of the dual-degree program, along with the flexibility of scheduling, simplified my decision to enroll in the JD/MPA.” — Theo Melancon ’12 City Manager | Dayton, Texas


David Lehman Governor’s Fellow | Economic Development Baton Rouge, Louisiana Summer 2019 I was selected by the governor and his staff to work directly with the secretary of Economic Development to produce a strategic plan to effectively utilize the federal Opportunity Zone program at the state level. We did this by creating an online exchange portal and coordinating with local economic development organizations and community stakeholders across Louisiana to populate the site with high-quality projects available to investors. This produced long-term investments in low-income communities. Throughout the summer, I also contributed to projects such as the Louisiana Veterans First business initiative, wrote briefs on petrochemical production, and took notes at top-level executive meetings while maintaining the highest degree of confidentiality on project proposals and initiatives before public announcement. Dr. Richardson’s and Dr. Heidelberg’s classes were very beneficial in helping me prepare for the Governor’s Fellows program. Dr. Richardson’s course taught me fundamental economic principles, and Dr. Heidelberg’s taught me important public administration concepts such as calculability within modernity and instrumental rationality, as well as decision-making models. This experience was one of the best and most rewarding summers of my life. I could not have done this without the mentorship and guidance of MPA professors such as Dr. Richardson and Dr. Heidelberg. Also, I got to go fishing in Grand Isle with Governor Edwards!

Practicums Experiential learning opportunities are an essential part of the curriculum. Internships, required for pre-service students, provide exposure to the working world in a governmental agency, nonprofit, or private organization that interfaces with the public sector. Students who are already working in the public sector will complete a practicum with his or her employer.


Faye Mellynn Baker Volunteer Services Intern | St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Memphis, TN Summer 2018 My summer at St. Jude gave me firsthand experience working in a hospital setting and working with volunteers. I was able to apply my Public Administration coursework in practical ways such as fine-tuning my excel skills and presenting information to volunteers in a concise, easy-to-understand manner. During this internship, I acted as the lead coordinator for the summer volunteer program, Volunteen. In my role, I was responsible for training all leaders for each session, day-to-day logistics, coordination of all program planning as well as acting as a manager to all participants volunteering. At the end of each Volunteen session, I compiled an end of volunteer program newsletter utilizing Emma Marketing Software and issued an end of program survey to receive feedback for each session. In addition to the Volunteen program, I drafted the department strategic plan completing a SWOT analysis with each employee. This internship exposed me to multiple elements of working in Volunteer Services at St. Jude. The competencies of this internship ranged from program planning to program implementation exposing me to the marketing, planning, and communication necessary for a strong program. I highly recommend this internship! This internship allowed me to expand my skill set of working with volunteers, while also exposing me to working in a hospital setting. Every employee at St. Jude is actively working towards the hospital mission, and it is evident in the strong culture of the hospital. Every employee at the hospital is helpful, caring, and truly cares about the work that they do.

Chief of Staff — Office of the Governor

How did your MPA help you achieve success? Receiving my MPA, and specifically from LSU Public Administration, opened the door with Los Angeles County Government and their prestigious management trainee program. I competed for one of 12 positions with other MPAs from schools such as Harvard, USC, NYU, and UC-Berkeley. After joining the program, I soon realized that my LSU education could compete with, and in some regards, exceed, the experiences of my peers. That experience has continued through the years, including my new position.

What advice do you have for someone seeking an MPA? Look for opportunities to build your résumé before and during the time you seek your MPA. Experience in Washington, DC or state government will set you apart when applying for government positions. After graduation, look for trainee/internship programs offered at the federal, state, and local levels.

What would you say to someone considering the LSU Department of Public Administration? It is one of the best in the county and will provide you an education and experience that will allow you to compete with other prestigious programs.

Megan Bel Miller ’03, ’04

Chief of Staff — U.S. Representative Steve Scalise

How did your MPA help you achieve success? The combination of business courses with a focus on public policy – alongside fantastic networking opportunities – provided me with not only the knowledge and skills key to working on complex policy issues but also a deeper appreciation for building strong relationships and coalitions to help achieve results.

Looking at your sector, what role do you see for MPAs in the future? MPAs have a unique understanding of the interaction between policymaking and the development and implementation of programs. They bring a results-oriented approach to solving problems.

What advice do you have for someone seeking an MPA? Absorb as much of the course materials as you can, but also remember to enjoy the experience and look for ways to develop strong ties with faculty, fellow students, and the community.


Kaitlin Sylvester ’09, ’15

Health Systems Manager — American Cancer Society

How did your MPA help you achieve success? Getting my MPA helped propel my career in various ways. Even during my interview with the American Cancer Society, my interviewers were quite familiar with LSU Public Administration’s esteemed reputation and were glad to hear I was pursuing a degree in that field. It’s incredibly beneficial to come from a program that is so well-respected and held in such high regard. PA provided me the tools and wherewithal to have a comprehensive view of my work within my organization, as well as with my external collaborators, many coming from the public sector. I’m grateful to have gained this knowledge and experience from my time at LSU.

What advice do you have for someone seeking an MPA? Think broadly about what you want to do in the future and consider how an advanced degree in public administration can help to enhance those goals. While many pursue work in the public sector focused on administration or policy, the skills associated with an MPA can be adapted to various fields. Having a public health role in a large health care nonprofit, I can confirm that I use the skills obtained in this program daily. It’s also important to note there is a special bond when meeting another MPA, especially one from LSU.

Mason Hess ’16

Budget Analyst — Finance Division — New York City Economic Development Corporation

How did your MPA help you achieve success? Earning the MPA helped me understand the public sector holistically. Politics, laws and rules, research, the public, the civil service, and budgeting are interconnected and influence one another. An MPA challenged me to understand these relationships. It enabled me to think more critically and to approach governmental opportunities and problems more realistically.

Looking at your sector, what role do you see for MPAs in the future? I notice more and more MPAs entering the public and nonprofit sectors. The degree has become a common prerequisite for entering into government service positions here in New York City. Many of my colleagues who are already working in municipal government are currently pursuing an MPA to advance in their careers. Earning an MPA has positive impacts on your career.

What advice do you have for someone seeking an MPA? Be sure to get out of the classroom when earning your MPA to see how processes work. I liked that the LSU PA required me to complete a practicum/internship. My professors also took us to public information meetings and invited practicing professionals into our classes (lobbyists, pollsters, NASA administrators, state department heads, etc.). These experiences enrich your studies.

What would you say to someone considering LSU Public Administration? The public sector offers so many opportunities for personal and professional fulfillment. LSU PA prepared me to compete and work in the public sector by teaching me the academic concepts, public sector trends, and the importance of diligent research, which always pays off. They also got me out into the real world of planning and budgeting, of polls and policymaking. The professors were always accessible. It was such a well-rounded, personal experience. 11

PASA The Public Administration Student Association (PASA) is a professional organization for students in the MPA program. PASA supports the department’s work to prepare students for the working world by providing professional development, career counseling, and social activities for MPA students. The organization regularly organizes networking events where students and alumni can interact with senior-level public administrators and political leaders. PASA elects its officers annually. Any MPA student who has at least a 3.0 GPA and is in good standing with the university is eligible to run for office. For more on PASA: Email or follow the group on Facebook (@PASALSU).

Pi Alpha Alpha The purpose of Pi Alpha Alpha is to encourage and recognize outstanding scholarship and accomplishment in public affairs and administration. Its objectives, such as fostering integrity, professionalism, and effective performance, promote the advancement of quality in the education and practice of the art and science of public affairs and administration. PAA membership identifies those with the highest performance levels in educational programs preparing them for public service careers. 12

Student Awards The Public Administration Faculty recognizes outstanding students during the Honors Luncheon.

Beyond the Classroom High-quality instruction provided by our energetic, studentoriented, and nationally recognized faculty pairs well with case studies, guest speakers, conferences, and other handson activities. For the last three years, the governor invited the graduating public administration students for lunch at the State Capitol or Governor’s Mansion with him and his chief of staff. The governor speaks about the current policies in the Louisiana news, what is upcoming in the legislative session, and how MPAs can make an impact in the Louisiana State Government. MPA students ask questions at the end of the lunch and hear the governor’s answers to their specific questions. The Public Administration Colloquium is a capstone course for MPA students taken in student’s final year. The series connects students with guest speakers who share their perspectives on the development and implementation of public policy/public management. Most of the speakers are LSU MPA alumni who are now working for state government. Speakers include graduates from the Legislative Fiscal Office, the Louisiana Board of Regents, the Louisiana Department of Health, the Louisiana Department of Revenue, and Louisiana Economic Development. From top: Graduating students visited the Louisiana Governor’s Mansion to hear a speech by Governor John Bel Edwards. LSU MPA students presented their research at the SECoPA 2019 in Baton Rouge, LA. The Public Administration Colloquium class learns from a guest speaker.

Conference participation is another way our students gain experience and grow their networks. In recent years, students have presented their research at the Southeastern Conference for Public Administration annual conference (SECoPA), the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) annual conference, Public Administration Theory Network conference, and the Western Social Science Association conference (WSSC). Students participate in the Network of Schools of Public Policy Affairs and Administration Student Simulation Competition (NASPAABatten) almost every year as well.


Points of Pride Eduniversal The Master of Public Administration has earned a spot in the top 25 on all six editions of Eduniversal’s list of best master’s programs. U.S. News & World Report U.S. News & World Report ranked the Master of Public Administration in the top 30 percent of all programs evaluated for its 2019 list of “Best Graduate Public Affairs Programs.” Student Achievement



Emmy Hicks, a Master of Public Administration Student, was selected as a 2019 American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) Founders’ Fellow. Outstanding students and new professionals in the fields of public service and public administration are eligible for this recognition.

Accreditation The Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration, the membership association of graduate programs in public administration, public policy, and public affairs, fully accredits the LSU Master of Public Administration program. Dedicated alumni and other industry professionals volunteer on the Department of Public Administration Advisory Board. This group works to strengthen the program’s role within LSU and beyond. By sharing their expertise and professional experience with PA faculty, staff, and students, advisory board members ensure that the MPA program continues to meet the needs of the workforce.
