Serving and Leading Communities
The public administration program helps working professionals gain the knowledge and skills needed to not only help advance their careers but also make a greater difference in the communities they serve. The MPA program helps develop leadership characteristics driven by fundamental public administration values, including those that are at the core of Norwich’s history and tradition. The academic concentration available for the Federal Publications Seminar partnership is Fiscal Management.

The Master of Public Administration program provides public service professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to respond strategically and nimbly to the needs of their communities, and to lead their organizations during both times of uncertainty and prosperity. Students graduate with a greater confidence in their abilities to manage change, manage budgets, and manage employees and constituents.

MPA Concentration

The academic concentration available to the Federal Publications Seminars partnership is fiscal management. Upon review of coursework completed at FPS, students may receive up to 6 transfer credits toward completion of the MPA program.

Get College Credit for Completing an FPS Certificate Program
Students who successfully complete one of two FPS certificate programs - the FPS Federal Government Acquisition and Contract Management Certificate program or the FPS Government Contract Accounting Certificate program - may receive up to 6 transfer credits toward completion of the MPA program.

Credits Needed to Complete the Master of Public Administration Program
