Up to six high-achieving students interested in public service careers, who have completed a course in either State and Local Politics or Public Administration, are invited to participate in a special Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) fast-track program during their second semester of their junior year.

These students are eligible to take up to nine hours of selected core courses in the M.P.A. program during their senior year that would count for both their undergraduate B.A. or B.S. as well as for our nationally-accredited M.P.A. After satisfactory performance, fast-track students are guaranteed admission into the M.P.A. program and receive full credit for the core graduate courses taken as a senior.
