Learn while Leading

The Department of Public Administration prepares students for a range of public service leadership posts, from legislative staffs and government agencies at all levels to nonprofit organizations and academic institutions. The Department offers a Ph.D. and Master of Public Administration (MPA), as well as graduate certificate programs in Public Policy and Nonprofit Management. The Department makes it possible for public administration professionals to study policy and theory, and explore their practical implications, while continuing to work full or part time. This creates an especially rich classroom experience, built on real-world learning examples and infinite opportunities.
