The Master of Public Administration (MPA) program at Presidio Graduate School consists of 15 required courses and one elective. Each course is designed to build on previous courses and integrate with simultaneous courses. The curriculum is designed around three program foundations.
Any MBA course, unless part of required MPA curriculum, may be selected as elective
Experiential Learning (EL) is a key part of our educational program. Using this “living case” methodology, students are able to gain experience in the workplace and learn how to apply the skills learned through the program. Additionally, this is an opportunity for students to gain relevant work experience to benefit their careers. Students are paired with an organization and work with them over the course of a semester on a specific project; in some cases, MPA students work with the same EL partner over several semesters.
