What will I learn?

Through the BA+MNAL program, students may complete a BA in Nonprofit Administration and a Master of Nonprofit Administration and Leadership through the Levin College of Urban Affairs in five years, instead of the six academic years normally required of full-time students. High performing undergraduate students may apply to the 5-year program during the third year of undergraduate study and, if accepted, complete MNAL coursework during the fourth year and a transition term. Students may then complete all remaining MNAL coursework in two semesters of full-time graduate study.
