Graduate Program

The Master of Public Policy and Administration is a professional degree that provides the fundamental knowledge and practical skills needed to excel in public service. Classes are offered on weekday evenings so professionally minded students can continue to work while completing their degree. As a part of our campus cohort, students will connect with MPPA faculty and students through in-depth discussions and hands-on projects. Students will also have access to real-world experience through the world class city of Fort Collins, recipient of the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Graduates of the MPPA program will be prepared to lead as executives, managers, analysts, and planners in a wide range of public sector agencies and nonprofit organizations.
