Public Administration, M.P.A.

The student will take 33 hours of core courses and nine hours of courses in an area of specialization. The core courses are PADM 5010 , PADM 5600 , PADM 7710 , PADM 7850  or PADM 7851 , PADM 7900 , PADM 7910 , PADM 7911 , PADM 7912 , PADM 7914 , PADM 7917 , and ECON 4110 . These courses have been selected by the faculty of the Public Administration Institute. The three courses in the area of specialization will be selected by the student in consultation with the Director of the MPA program. The MPA is a non-thesis program. It does require an internship (for students who are pre-service) or a practicum (for students who are in-service). Students are responsible for getting their own internships though the Institute will provide information about potential internships. An Exit examination is given the semester in which the student is graduating. Finally, all MPA students are required to maintain a MPA Portfolio that includes a resume, objectives, and, information for all courses taken. The MPA Portfolio must be presented to the faculty at the Exit examination.
