A part-time MPA for working professionals

You’ve reached a pivotal moment in your career when you want to elevate your abilities and do more to expand your reach and make a greater impact. It’s time to launch yourself on a path to bolder challenges with the Evans School Part-Time MPA program.

This program will guide you in becoming a knowledgable and effective public sector leader with advanced management and communication skills who can properly manage policy development in all types of public sector organizations.

Students in the part-time MPA track complete Evans School’s nationally ranked MPA degree program over three years. Students experience the same rigorous curriculum as the full-time MPA, with core and elective coursework bridging public policy and public management and many areas of expertise to study within. Late afternoon or evening sections (after 4:00 pm) are available to part-time track students for core courses and selected elective course offerings.

As the majority of students pursuing the part-time track are working professionals, it is likely that the MPA program’s professional experience requirement may be fulfilled through current and/or recent, relevant professional experience related to the degree and your career goals. Students with questions about this requirement are encouraged to work with the Career Development team regarding fulfillment of the requirement.

Please note that international students (on F-1 and J-1 visas) are not eligible for the part-time MPA program.
