The Master of Public Administration program provides a quality graduate degree that is affordable, responsive to local workforce needs and is accessible to working part-time commuting students who seek to serve the public through employment in governmental and other non-profit institutions.
The Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree is an interdisciplinary program sponsored by the departments of Political Science, Criminal Justice, Geography and Regional Planning, and Economics and Business Management. Academic stewardship of this program will be the responsibility of a graduate committee consisting of one representative from each of these departments, selected by the recommendation from the graduate committee.
