Master of Public Administration - International Development 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 concentrating in International Development Studies are concerned with policy issues, policy formulation and implementation in developing countries. This concentration helps students understand the broad and specific contexts in which international development decisions are made. Students can explore international development concerns using a range of interdisciplinary perspectives and methods including anthropology, demography, economics, regional planning, sociology, biotechnology, and legal studies.
