Master in Public Affairs

The Graduate Program in Public Affairs and Practical Politics provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for effective political action by merging hands-on experiences with rigorous graduate seminars to bridge theory and praxis. Students apply their skills outside of the classroom setting to create positive change in their communities through the political process.

The Master of Public Affairs (MOPA) Program is ideal for people interested in translating an interest in public affairs and politics into a career in public service for the common good. Graduates are enabled to pursue careers that make a difference in nonprofits, governmental offices, political entities and the private sector.

Career paths for the program's graduate students include grassroots and community organizing, campaign strategy and management, governmental relations and advocacy, strategic communications, government and public agencies, journalism, and teaching.
