Department Website

Bridging theoretical knowledge with practical experience, the nonprofit organizations concentration is designed for the individual who has a career interest in upper levels of nonprofit management, resource development for nonprofit organizations, advocacy and lobbying, service delivery, and community building. The program can be completed entirely online, on campus or a combination of both formats. To earn the master of public administration degree, students must complete six core courses on governance and institutions; organizational management and change; information and analytic methods; economics and public finance; the policy process and democracy; and leadership and professional ethics. Students must also complete seminars in nonprofit management and nonprofit financial management, as well as three electives.
