Welcome to the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program, an exclusive online degree graduate program that follows the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA) accreditation. We value public service and view their purpose driven by democratic and ethical paradigms to serve the public interest. We focus on civic engagement and public responsibilities on local, national and international levels and as part of a green movement. The curriculum combines theory with practical skills aiming to develop conceptual, analytical, and ethical applications for administrative problems in the public and non-profit sectors.
The online MPA program at Marywood University provides helpful and relevant methodology that integrates theoretical elements with practical skills. With classes scheduled all online through Moodle the curriculum is designed for full-time and in-career students who come from different geographical areas within the United States and the world and from a wide variety of professional and academic backgrounds. By maintaining active involvement in public service, we create effective networking within the public and nonprofit sector while preparing students for leadership positions on local, state, national and international levels. Faculty expertise include all substantive policy areas which enable them to teach, advise, research, and serve both the profession and the community. Read more.
