Summary

The mission of the Virginia Tech Center for Public Administration and Policy (CPAP) is to promote good governance and the advancement of capable and ethical public service by providing outstanding education, research and outreach in the theory and practice of public administration, management, and policy.

CPAP seeks:

To provide qualified public service professionals currently in service and pre- or early-career students who plan to become public service professionals with a rigorous program of study for developing managerial, analytical and normative evaluation skills in public management and public policy.

To prepare teachers and scholars for faculty service in colleges and universities around the country and the world, thereby broadening the scope of knowledge in public administration and policy studies among administrators and citizenry.

To engage faculty, practitioners, and graduate students in systematic research and study designed to improve the quality of policy making and public service within the varied jurisdictions of government in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the national capital region, as well as nationally and internationally.

CPAP offers two degrees: the Master of Public Administration (MPA) and the PhD. in public administration and public affairs. The MPA is offered in Blacksburg, Arlington, and Richmond.

All M.P.A. students must complete nine required 3-credit courses, plus three elective courses of their choosing, plus a portfolio for a total of 39 credit hours.
