Program Overview

The Master of Public Administration (MPA) at Augusta University is the preferred degree for professionals working in government and the nonprofit sector. 

Accredited by the Network of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA), the MPA degree is a versatile degree that allows students to advance their careers in numerous fields in the public sector, such as managing cybersecurity, economic development, criminal justice, city-county management, emergency management, and many others

Many of our classes are scheduled at night and on the weekends to better accommodate the working professionals in our program and our faculty includes traditional academics, “pracademics” (academics with career experience in government or non-profit organizations), and working professionals to offer you hand-on experience.
