Master of Public Administration (MPA) (Management) Program

The MPA (Management) is a 39 credit hour graduate program.  The Graduate Diploma in Public Administration (Management) (GDPA (M)) is a 21 credit hour graduate program, both are designed for individuals who have public sector experience and wish to continue their academic studies part time via a blended learning model. The MPA (M) emphasizes the theory, analysis and practice of public policy and management. Dalhousie professors, in collaboration with public sector specialists, authored the MPA (M) courses to address the specific concerns and realities of today's public sector and NGO. A management team from the School of Public Administration ensures that the courses are integrated yet individually focused, and that the curriculum builds a firm academic foundation for the practice of public administration.
