Get the skills to build a better world
Increase your impact as a change agent
Whether your goal is to bring positive change to your local community or to advance a cause you feel passionate about, our Master of Public Administration (MPA) program equips you with the leadership and analytical skills you need to realize your vision. Join us to boost your influence and effectiveness in driving meaningful change in the public sector and nonprofit arenas.
Earn an in-demand credential
The majority of leadership positions in government and nonprofit organizations today are advertised as “master’s preferred.” At the same time, an uptick in retirements in the public servant ranks since the pandemic has created opportunities at all levels and across all sectors. With the Clark MPA as a credential, you are well prepared to bring foundational skills and fresh insights to local, national, and global organizations.
Combine academics with real-world application
The Clark MPA provides you with solid classroom training in research methods, public management, public affairs, nonprofit leadership, marketing, and management. And your Capstone project allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and professional competencies as you apply them to challenges faced by a “real-world” organization.
