Accelerated MPA



logo accelerated mpa

Starting Fall 2015, the Department of Public Administration will be offering an accelerated MPA Program. The accelerated MPA is a full-time degree program designed to provide you with all of the requirements for an MPA while preparing you for a career in the public sector

Classes are scheduled so that full-time students can complete the program in 12 months. These courses will be offered during the day time and are available to both domestic and international students.

An MPA degree can provide you with an opportunity to influence the communities you live in – the cities, states, and nations around the world. Employment demand for professionals with leadership, financial management, policy analysis, and other skills imparted by the MPA degree has never been stronger.

The MPA Program is accredited by The National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA). To achieve this status, the MPA Program must meet certain curricular and operational standards that demonstrate the quality of the curriculum, faculty and student support services.

Students should follow our standard admissions procedure to be considered for the accelerated MPA program.
