Public Administration program earns full reaccreditation

Great news! The School of Urban and Public Affairs’ Master of Public Administration program has earned full reaccreditation through 2018 from the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA).

The accreditation comes after a rigorous one-year peer review process which included an internal review report, a site visit from appointed faculty from other programs, and an external review by the association. The MPA program at UTA is one of just 162 schools recognized with accreditation from NASPAA.

“Accreditation tells our students that they are in a high quality program as well as strengthens the resumes of our alumni,” said David Coursey, director of SUPA’s MPA program.
