Master of Public Administration

The University of North Georgia (UNG) offers a 36-semester-hour Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree in order to serve qualified, professionally oriented college graduates who aspire employment in the public sector, in a nonprofit organization, or in a corporate setting having extensive interaction with governmental agencies.

The program consists of 27 semester hours of core courses plus nine (9) semester hours in one of the following concentrations:
