Evening MPA Program

The Evening MPA Program is designed for the working adult. Students are able to select their own concentration and set their own schedule from courses offered during the evenings, generally from 6-9 p.m. This allows students to take as many classes each semester as their personal and professional life permits. Depending on how many courses a student takes per semester, this degree can be completed in two years, but might take as long as four years.

Students are also afforded the opportunity to take elective courses outside the MPA Department as long as the courses have a direct relationship with public administration.
