MPA Degree Requirements
The MPA degree requires 39 credit hours for in-service students and 40 credit hours for pre-service students, distributed as summarized below.
The program usually takes five semesters of full-time study to complete. Students studying part time are strongly advised to complete the program in six years.
All core and elective courses, and most area of emphasis courses, are taught on a regular basis -- once per academic year or every other academic year. MPA Program instruction is delivered almost entirely in-class and in-person. However, some online courses are available, but on a very limited basis.
