Master of Public Service and Administration in Public Service and Administration
The Bush School of Government and Public Service offers an interdisciplinary, non-thesis program leading to the Master of Public Service and Administration (MPSA) degree. The MPSA curriculum provides a professional education for those seeking careers at any level of government or in the nonprofit sector. It includes a solid academic and practical grounding in management and policy analysis, as well as an opportunity to refine critical leadership skills such as team building, motivation, conflict resolution, and effective written and oral communication. The MPSA program is fully accredited by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA).
The PSAA Department offers a two-year, full-time course of study in one of three tracks: Nonprofit Management, Public Management, or Public Policy Analysis. In addition, students have the option to choose a concentration in a substantive area such as analytical methods; cybersecurity policy; education policy and management; energy, environment, and technology policy and management; health policy and management; homeland security and national defense; international nongovernmental organizations; state and local government policy and management; or they may design their own concentration in consultation with their advisor. The program includes a non-credit-bearing internship and two semesters of capstone policy seminars which give students the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to a real-world problem or issue.
