Master of Public Administration - Government, Politics, and Policy Studies Concentration Cornell University - Cornell Institute for Public Affairs

USA

Course info

Summary

MPA (Master of Public Administration) degree is a two-year graduate program that requires four semesters of residence (of which one can be away from campus in approved off-campus study programs). Because post-baccalaureate experience is weighed heavily in CIPA admission decisions, a majority of Fellows will have spent some time already engaged in public affairs in some way. This makes the graduate learning experience more meaningful.

The MPA program presents a basic structure for undertaking graduate study in public affairs, but CIPA Fellows are the primary designers of their respective educational and career trajectories while at Cornell. When entering the program, each Fellow is provided a faculty advisor. Fellows work with their respective advisors to design individualized courses of study. After deciding upon a concentration and a plan of study by the end of the first semester, Fellows will choose one of the three options for completing the professional writing/analysis qualification: a capstone project, a professional report, or a thesis. The latter option will require a Fellow to identify an additional advisor with subject matter specialization.

MPA Fellows choosing the Government, Politics, and Policy Studies concentration develop an advanced understanding of how politics and political management intersects with policy processes, program development and resource management in the public sector. This concentration, in particular, focuses on the politics of domestic and international policymaking and administrative processes. Fellows in this concentration develop a skills set that allow them to work with elected officials, public managers and citizens to develop actionable policy goals.
