About

 The MPA is the key professional degree for individuals working in the fast-growing public and nonprofit sectors, and our graduates succeed in obtaining work in those areas. The College of Public Service MPA is the only NASPAA-accredited MPA program in Middle Tennessee.

Overview

Located in the state capital and a vibrant city, we can offer opportunities to interact with state and local public policymakers, administrators and nonprofit leaders during your studies. The MPA can also be combined with a graduate certificate to emphasize Public Policy, Healthcare Administration and Planning, or Nonprofit Management, increasing relevance for these dynamic fields. Courses are offered in a variety of delivery approaches (evening, hybrid, weekend) which help meet our students' needs as working adults. You can start the MPA program in spring, summer or fall. Students who have less than one year professional-level experience in a public, nonprofit or healthcare administration setting, as evaluated by program advisor, complete a 300-hour internship, gaining real-world experience in their desired sector (recent host organizations).
