The Public Management Development Certificate is available to students who are interested in studying public administration without committing to an entire MPA program. Both a basic certificate (16 credits) and an advanced certificate (36 credits) are available.
Course offerings within the basic program provide an introduction to the concepts and skills associated with public sector administrative responsibilities. The advanced certificate program permits further development in the fundamentals of public sector management.
Note: Admission to the certificate program is upon the same basis as is admission to the MPA program.
- Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited university
- A cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 from a regionally accredited, bachelor’s or master’s degree-bearing institution.
Note: Applicants with a GPA lower than 3.0 may be admitted as a 10% exception for scholarly ability exception policies.
