M.P.A. Curriculum

The 39 credits of coursework in our online Master of Public Administration program prepare you to lead with purpose and make a difference in your community. You’ll gain the skills you need to succeed in a top-level position in a nonprofit organization, as well as the public and philanthropic sectors.

The M.P.A. program does a great job at linking both government and nonprofit sectors together, so you're prepared for both fields when you graduate.

Guided by the NACC

Our online M.P.A. program is one of the first in the country created under curriculum guidelines from the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council (NACC). These guidelines help institutions build effective, impactful degrees in nonprofit management, and they ensure you will receive practical, relevant knowledge you can put to work in the field.

Based on the NACC curriculum model, we’ve designed our courses to give you a better understanding of leadership, management, public finance, human resources, collaborative decision-making, public policy, ethics, and social advocacy.

Core Courses (15 credit hours)

Nonprofit Concentration (21 credit hours)
