Through rigorous professional training across several disciplines, the Master of International Public Affairs (MIPA) degree program prepares students from the United States and around the world to engage in governance in ways that meet the challenges of globalization.
The school admits about 50 students per year, approximately 15 to the Master of International Public Affairs Program and 35 to the MPA Program. The small class size enables students in the cohort to get to know each other and their faculty members well.
Students must complete 42 credits, including six core courses, a one-credit professional development seminar, plus eight elective courses. An internship can count for up to three elective credits. The program generally takes two years and you can find a detailed degree plan here.
