The M.P.A. program teaches you time-tested management theories for real-world application.
The faculty members sponsor a monthly Public Administration Colloquium Series that engages students in a vigorous discussion of current research and competing viewpoints on public administration issues. The Public Administration Student Association and the Ph.D. Student Association provide networking opportunities and insightful discussions.
