SDSU Offers Top-Ranked Master of Public Administration Online Degree Program

The application deadline is Nov. 1 for the next cohort in San Diego State University’s highly-ranked Master of Public Administration (MPA) Online degree program that begins in January 2017.

Ranked the No. 1 program of its kind in the California State University system and fifth in California by US News and World Report (2012), this 16-month program is offered to experienced professionals who currently work in government and nonprofit agencies.

The rigorous format has been designed for working professionals who are employed in managerial positions in public administration, nonprofit administration, urban planning, criminal justice, or related fields. Past experience in these fields will be considered for applicants who are not currently working in the public or nonprofit sector.

The 36-unit online curriculum is the same as the campus-based program. However, the fast-track, online program is taught in six, two-month modules with two-on-campus experiences – at the beginning and end of the program.

In each two-month module, students take two accelerated courses as part of an online peer cohort. They receive a brief break (generally two weeks) between modules.

The final module consists of a capstone research course where students develop an applied research project. It is then presented to a panel of professional practitioners and faculty during the final on-campus visit.
