Go deeper with a Masters in Public Administration program


Many alumni who have been through a leadership or civic engagement cohort with us are currently working in the public sector for counties, soil and watershed districts, or other publicly funded agencies.

If you are looking for an opportunity to deepen your career path, consider a Masters in Public Administration. Offered through the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota, it is a program designed specifically for mid-career professionals that care about advancing the public good.
