Letter from the Program Coordinator

VSU offers both the Master of Public Administration and the Doctor of Public Administration Programs - and both can be completed on-line.

NASPA logoOur MPA programs are fully accredited by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (Only MPA programs are reviewed for accreditation by NASPAA). The MPA is recognized as the "industry standard" for those seeking careers in the public and non-profit sectors. MPA coursework seeks to improve your knowledge base, develop critical thinking skills, and promote understanding of the policy implementation process in a democratic society. Courses are offered in a range of political, social, legal, management, and financial areas.

The DPA allows mid-career students the opportunity to advance their level of knowledge in the field of public and nonprofit administration. As a practitioner-oriented degree, the DPA provides the essential leadership, management, communication, and problem-solving skills needed in today's professional and global environment.
