Go Global: MPA/MPP Degrees Make a World of Difference

Welcome to the MPA Program at ECU

The Department of Political Science offers the Master of Public Administration (MPA). Our program is fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA). Each term we have approximately forty students.

A good beginning place to start is the FAQs link. The MPA Overview and the MPA Handbook go into even greater detail on the program and its requirements.

If you have additional questions about ECU or the MPA program, please feel free to contact the Political Science Department or me.

We are proud of our program and would like to hear from you. We promise to respond quickly to any messages you might send. Thank you for your interest!
