Course Description


Plan A is designed to provide researchers, teachers, and prospective college instructors with the knowledge and research skills in public administration. Students are required to prepare and defend a thesis. Plan B aims to provide students with the theoretical background and technical skills needed for the effective implementation of public policy in a developing country. Students under Plan B may choose from the following fields of specialization: public policy and program administration, organization studies, fiscal administration, local government and regional development, voluntary sector management, public enterprise management, and spatial information management. Plan C, or the mid-career MPA program, is specially designed for public servants who have at least five years of managerial work experience and who desire to accelerate their professional growth through a program of graduate study. This program aims to broaden the knowledge of mid-career public administrators about theories and techniques of public management, and to give them the opportunity to interact with other administrators in the university setting. Students under Plan C take 30 units. In lieu of the thesis, an oral defense of two outstanding papers is required.
