About

The mission of the Master of Public Administration (MPA) Program at Bowling Green State University is to educate students, preparing them to assume leadership roles in public service. 

Overview

The Public Administration program at the Bowling Green State University aims to provide the public and nonprofit sectors with talented and rigorously-trained graduates equipped to address problems and challenges now and in the years ahead.  It strives to promote intellectual development, scholarship, leadership, ethics and training in basic and applied research relevant to the public and nonprofit sectors at various levels. 

The program trains students in the theory, methods, and practice of public administration through a combination of coursework, research, and experiential learning via public service and client-based projects. The program serves its students, BGSU, the state of Ohio, the US, and the international community by promoting innovative and effective solutions in the public and nonprofit sectors.

Internship/Experiential Paper and Thesis

  • Most of our students pursue the internship option as a means to gain meaningful work experience prior to graduation. Internships may be either paid or unpaid placements in the public sector, and may be completed either during the school year or the summer.
  • Students with prior work experience may be waived out of the internship, but must still complete the capstone.
