For students already in public service careers, the MPA program provides them the ability to improve skills, broaden perspectives and assume positions of greater responsibility. MPA degree requirements are designed to provide instruction in the core knowledge and competencies in public administration, as well as a range of additional subjects appropriate to the student’s career interests. An informal career tracking system allows students to integrate their study of core knowledge and competencies with courses that provide special preparation for entry into such specialty fields as city management, financial management, aviation administration, environmental administration, museum administration, and nonprofit organizations.
The Public Administration program at Southern Illinois University, an applied program with a culture of community engagement, provides students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities for managerial, administrative,and other professional careers in public, private, aviation, nonprofit, and private/public organizations.
