Dear Prospective MPA Student:
Welcome to the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program at the University of Southern Indiana! The MPA is an important course of study aimed to train and prepare you to be future managers, administrators, and leaders in the public and non-profit sectors throughout the Evansville area, Southwestern Indiana, and the Tri-State region.
The MPA program is the preferred degree program for individuals who hold or hope to acquire a supervisory position in the public or non-profit sector. Individuals interested in these career sectors pursue the MPA to improve their management-related job skills and performance, obtain leadership positions within their current organizations, or begin their career in a public or non-profit organization. Some pursue the MPA to strengthen their academic credentials and knowledge of the public sector to prepare for law school or doctoral level work.
Please take a moment to look at the website for information regarding course offerings and program requirements, admission deadlines and requirements, and application forms and other admission documents. If you have any questions about the MPA program, please contact me at 812/461-5204 or by e-mail: mjhanka.
