About Us

Graduate programs in public administration (MPA) are coordinated by the Division of Public Administration. The division offers courses in the field of public administration, which can be used as part of both the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees.

The public administration curriculum emphasizes a management approach, which it combines with public policy concerns to produce a focus on executive policy management. The program is particularly strong when combined with academic studies in comparative and development administration, policy analysis, urban studies, economic development, and public finance. M.A. and Ph.D. graduates have pursued careers with colleges and universities, national research centers, and professional organizations.

The 10-person faculty of the division is supplemented by cooperating faculty from the Department of Political Science, the departments of Accountancy, Geography, Management, and Sociology, from the Center for Governmental Studies, and by senior public administrators (Advisory Boards).
