The School of Public Administration at Florida Atlantic University offers a graduate program leading to the Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree. The MPA is a professional degree for practitioners in the public sector or for those who plan to work solving public problems. The MPA consists of 42 semester hours, including 30 hours (10 courses) of core curriculum and 12 hours (4 courses) of elective courses. The FAU MPA is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA).
In order to better serve our students, we offer a combination of traditional and internet-mediated courses, plus some fully online courses, that combine on-campus and cyberspace classes. We offer MPA classes at the Davie campus as well as the Boca Raton campus.
