Become a Social Change Leader
The Middlebury Institute Master of Public Administration (MPA) is designed for those who want to make a difference in confronting critical social problems, including hunger, poverty, disease, joblessness, and powerlessness. Through hands-on experience, applied learning, practical tools, and community support, this program prepares graduates to be effective leaders and managers in international development for social change organizations, NGOs, nonprofits and government agencies around the world. The four-semester 60-credit program includes core coursework and optional areas of concentration, as well as courses taught in a student’s chosen language of study and a professional practicum.
Practical Skills for Positive Change
The International Policy and Development degree and Master of Public Administration degree share a common faculty and curriculum. Together these two degrees make up the Development Practice and Policy (DPP). DPP gives students the flexibility to explore both areas of study and then choose one at the start of their final semester.
