Accredited Degrees & Certificates
Master’s in Public Administration
Partnership with California State University, East Bay
Alameda County and the Department of Public Affairs and Administration at California State University, East Bay (CSUEB) invite you to apply for admission to the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program. This program is offered at the County of Alameda Training & Education Center in Oakland, and is identical to the MPA program offered at the CSUEB Hayward campus.
The Alameda County MPA program is offered to public employees in Alameda County. Individuals directly employed by Alameda County will receive priority admission consideration. The MPA program can be completed in two years.
Study with a Cohort Model
This degree will help you cultivate the intellectual and practical tools you need to become a more effective employee, supervisor, or manager in the public and non-profit sectors. In addition, the degree may open doors for individuals already working in public administration, since many professional opportunities require additional education beyond the Bachelor’s degree.
The MPA program offered through Alameda County is offered in a cohort model, in which a group of students move through all classes of the program together. Past programs have shown that a cohort provides mutual academic, emotional, and logistical support for program success and timely degree completion. The camaraderie and collaborative learning with experienced colleagues builds lasting personal ties and professional growth. Class discussions, especially in sensitive topics, can thus be more in depth and students reap the benefits of this.
- Baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution, in any area of study
- Statement of purpose (2-3 pages)
- Minimum overall GPA of 2.50 (C+): GPAs below 2.50 will be considered if the overall GPA in the last half of the baccalaureate coursework is 2.50 or better
