Public Administration, Master of (M.P.A.)

Admission requirements

In addition to the general requirements, selection is made on the basis of prior academic performance, professional accomplishments and other indicators of the ability to pursue graduate studies and a professional career in public management successfully. Specifically, the application for admission requires a transcript documenting the completion of a bachelor’s degree, three letters of reference (including both academic and professional references if possible), a current resume and a satisfactory standardized test score (GRE, GMAT, LSAT). Students submitting LSAT scores must have taken an undergraduate math course (algebra, statistics, finite mathematics) and passed with a “C” or better.

No applicant will be considered for admission to the M.P.A. program within two years of having been terminated from the program or of having been rejected for admission to the program.
