M.P.A. Curriculum

The 39 credits of coursework in our online Master of Public Administration 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 non-profit organization, as well as the public and philanthropic sectors.

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

Guided by the N.A.C.C.

Our online M.P.A. curriculum is one of the first M.P.A. programs in the country created in accordance with curriculum guidelines from the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council (N.A.C.C.). These guidelines help institutions build effective, impactful degrees in non-profit management and they ensure you will receive practical, relevant knowledge you can put to work in the field.

Based on the N.A.C.C. 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)

Non-Profit Concentration (21 credit hours)
