Learn to be an effective administrative leader and thoughtful policy analyst with a Master of Public Administration (MPA). Our MPA is ranked among the best in the nation. It is fully accredited by NASPAA, the nation’s chief accrediting body for schools of public affairs and administration.
MPA students develop skills in budgeting, communications, economic analysis, fundraising, management, program evaluation, and research methods. Knowledge is gained of American government and public policies in such areas as immigration, the environment, housing, economic development, health care, and foreign affairs. Students are prepared to work in either the nonprofit sector or government. A public service career may be pursued as an elected officeholder, program manager, policy advocate, or researcher.
Students in the traditional program have the opportunity to pursue a 12 credit specialization in one of five areas: Health Care Policy, Nonprofit Management, Policy Analysis and Evaluation, Public Management, and Urban Development and Sustainability.
