Hamline’s MPA Program is Now Offered Online with Occasional Weekend Residencies on Campus.

Hamline invites those interested in public administration to advance their careers—on their schedules—and in their zip codes—with the new Hamline School of Business online master in public administration program.

Hamline educates students to serve as innovators and leaders in their field. The learning environment draws on the expertise of a network of faculty, advisors, alumni, and professionals. It merges theory with practice and academic learning with relevant, real-world experience. Students have the opportunity to apply classroom instruction to their professional lives, using their acquired knowledge for the good of their communities.

This degree is designed for working professionals interested in the dynamics of the public sector. The program provides the knowledge and tools students need to enhance their careers, as both managers of public employees and administrators meeting the fiduciary responsibilities of expending tax dollars. Students in the program will:

  • Take courses online with weekend residencies every two months at Hamline’s Minneapolis location

  • Learn with and from colleagues who share their challenges and offer a wide range of perspectives. As members of a cohort, students will gain practical knowledge and life-long networks. 

  • Interact and engage with Hamline’s exceptional instructors who will provide a quality educational experience from the oldest and most prestigious MPA in the region. 

Hamline is currently enrolling students in this program for classes beginning in January 2012. For more information, email the Office of Graduate Admission, call 651-523-2900 or, apply online now.
