The Cornell Institute for Public Affairs (CIPA) offers a two-year program of graduate study leading to the Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) degree.
A Cornell MPA Can Help You Succeed
CIPA offers remarkable flexibility to enable you to meet your goals. Building on a foundation of coursework essential for all aspects of public affairs, you can choose a concentration with a program of courses and experiences designed to be most meaningful to you. You will have the entire university open to you--Cornell's exceptional faculty, cutting-edge research, and engaged alumni from all academic disciplines and fields of endeavor.
CIPA Offers You Eight Different Concentration Options:
Gain Hands-on Experiences
At CIPA you will be challenged to apply your knowledge and skills to real-world clients and situations. You will find an array of substantive, hands-on opportunities--both domestic and international. Because many of the most challenging and rewarding internships in the field of public service are unpaid, CIPA offers a competitive grant program to assist with expenses.
Pursue International Off-Campus Study
If spending a semester working and studying in an international locale seems out of reach during graduate school, guess again. At CIPA, you have several avenues for combining academic and professional pursuits during a semester abroad. You may enroll for a Cornell-based program in Nepal or Italy. Or, you may choose to study at a partner institution in Spain, Mexico or Hungary.
CEU/Budapest: Accredited in both the US and Europe, the Central European University (CEU) attracts students from more than 100 countries on five continents, with faculty from thirty countries.
