Master of Public Administration

Graduates Spring 2016

Congratulations to the spring 2016 MPA graduates!

The Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Master of Public Administration (MPA) is part of the School of Public Administration (SPA), which is part of the College for Design and Social Inquiry (CDSI). The purpose of the MPA program is to provide professional education for leadership and management by offering a broad-based core curriculum that covers the essentials of both leadership and management in social, economic, and political contexts. Hence, the mission of the FAU MPA program is to provide intellectual, analytical, technical, and practical education to advance the state of knowledge in public administration and to enhance ethical public service values within our service region.

The Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA) Commission on Peer Review and Accreditation originally accredited the FAU MPA in 1986 and re-accredited the program in 1993, 2000, 2007, and 2014.
