The M.A. in Nonprofit Administration develops, educates and empowers students to excel in their nonprofit organization. This uniquely focused interdisciplinary and cross-college program brings together the College of Arts and Sciences and the Boler College of Business. Students in the program benefit by interacting with classmates of diverse backgrounds and experience, including those serving in local charities, current nonprofit leaders and to those new to the sector.

The program encourages students to learn collaboratively —at a university dedicated to social justice. The program balances exposure to the field, practical instruction, and case-based education to link classroom instruction to real-world settings within nonprofit organizations. Students often report that what they learn in class can be put into practice immediately.

Featuring intimate class sizes to ensure individualized attention and collaboration, students will develop leadership, team-building, ethical value frameworks and practices, and resource management and development skills. Classes and coursework are also offered to support specific areas of interest, such as public and private partnerships, advocacy, law, public policy, and more.

The program challenges students to question the status quo, discover answers together, and move the needle to improve their agencies and change their communities.

Both full-time and part-time options are available, allowing students in the 36-hour program to continue at their own pace to succeed in their careers while learning new foundational skills they can apply immediately … and prepare for new opportunities.
