Earliest start date
Established in 1973, the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program at Kentucky State University prepares students for careers as supervisors, managers, and decision-makers in the public sector—from local and state, to federal government agencies. The MPA program is accredited by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA). Our program courses are designed to develop student learning competencies as outlined by NASPAA to ensure students will succeed as practitioners in the public sector. Accordingly, the program is designed to prepare students to gain problem-solving skills, critical thinking competencies, program analysis abilities, and insight into the challenges and processes of public policy implementation.
