Master's in Public Administration
Because of the collaborative nature of the program, faculty members of two of Rhode Island's institutions of higher education teach the M.P.A. courses. These faculty members have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching, research, service to the practitioners, and advising of graduate students. The program also draws upon Rhode Island's community of practitioners to teach specialized courses and act as resources for the program.
