Under the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program, students develop the strong managerial, communication, and analytical skills that public, private and non-profit organizations are seeking. At UMass Lowell, a highly ranked research university, close partnerships with such organizations provide learning experiences that emphasize an ethic of public service, while faculty from several disciplines bring their expertise, and various perspectives, to the program.
The MPA program offers the following options: Human Service Management, Justice Administration and Public Humanities and the Arts.
The program is available entirely online, and students may attend full- or part-time. Please contact us to discuss the schedule that will work best for you!
UMass Lowell’s MPA program can help students transition to non-profit management ranks from the for-profit sector, advance within a non-profit or public agency, Non-Governmental Organization, or start a new job with the credentials and depth of knowledge necessary to advance.
