Programs of Study
The final course in the MPA program is the Capstone. In this course, students will have the opportunity to pull everything they have learned together in the context of a group applied research project for a real client. In addition, students will take the exit exam which tests achievement of our program's learning objectives. Students must complete all 36 hours within a six year period.
