Experiential learning

Our MPA offers far more than traditional lectures and lessons. You'll also get the benefit of experiential learning – typically through an approved internship. What's more, your concentration's course work will culminate in a project-oriented course—a capstone—that lets you apply the knowledge you gained throughout the program.

You can also join the SPEA Nonprofit Management Association (NMA), a professional student organization for the nonprofit management concentration that offers networking and current information on events in the nonprofit industry.
