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. 

Part-Time MPA Admissions

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, students are encouraged to work with the Evans School’s Career Development office to request waiving the MPA program’s internship requirement if you have at least two years of recent, relevant professional experience related to the degree and your career goals. 

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