Georgia Southern University to Host Online MPA Information Sessions
Savannah area professionals will learn how they can earn an online certificate in public administration from Georgia Southern University without ever leaving the city limits during an upcoming information session. The first of three upcoming sessions will be held Wednesday, April 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center on Fahm Street.
Since 1973, Georgia Southern University’s Masters of Public Administration program has been a leader in the advancement of public and nonprofit education throughout Georgia and beyond. With a focus on public management, nonprofit management and criminal justice administration, the MPA program has been accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration since 1990. More recently, the MPA Program gained membership in the National Academic Centers Council, which is comprised of academic institutions committed to furthering research and education in philanthropy and the nonprofit sector. Today, the MPA Program is recognized as one of the top graduate programs at Georgia Southern University, boasting a dedicated core faculty and an alumni base of more than 700. The program continues to advance with the introduction of the online graduate certificate in public administration. The certification program is designed to take about a year to complete and to enable professionals to qualify for a pay increase or to continue toward a master’s degree. Information sessions are held in Savannah at the Coastal Georgia Center on Fahm Street, allowing busy area professionals to earn the degree without traveling to the Statesboro campus. Additional sessions will be held May 15 and June 13 at the same location.
During the information sessions, MPA professors and advisors with Georgia Southern University’s College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences will be available to answer questions about the program, entrance exams and how to apply for both the MPA degree and online certificate.
