Master of Public Administration

About This Program


For the convenience of our students, CSUN's Master of Public Administration Program is offered not only on-campus and online but also at a growing number of off-campus sites. While the majority of these locations are made available through contracts with public-sector organizations for the benefit of their own employees, most of these sites are also open to the public.

In addition to the large number of locations, CSUN's off-campus MPA program features the following advantages:

  • Each off-campus MPA program site has its own options/majors, including Public Sector Management and Leadership, and Nonprofit Management. To learn more, select your preferred location from the table below.
  • Convenient class times – MPA classes typically meet on weeknights (6-9:45 p.m.).
  • Personalized support – CSUN's dedicated MPA staff supports students from program start to completion.
  • Outstanding instructional quality – Classes are taught by CSUN faculty from various departments as well as practicing professionals who are recognized experts in their fields.
