DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION
Now more than ever, public servants, steeped in ethical decision-making practices, are needed in our country and world. Our undergraduate and graduate program offerings in public service are a direct response to this need.
The Department of Public Administration is committed to preparing students to develop the skills they need to become ethical, creative, inclusive and intelligent leaders in public service. The Department offers an undergraduate minor and a Master of Public Administration, which can be earned both on campus and fully online. In addition to the MPA, you can earn graduate certificates in conjunction with your degree or as a standalone option. In addition, the Department offers a joint JD/MPA degree program with the Villanova Charles Widger School of Law.
