On April 16th, 2019, the Master of Public Administration Program at the College of Charleston announced a new Executive format starting Fall 2019.
“At its core,” the program’s official press release reads. “Executive education allows ambitious mid-career professionals to earn an advanced degree without having to withdraw from work and life commitments.”
The new Executive MPA format courses will be offered at the Lowcountry Graduate Center (LGC) in North Charleston, SC. Here, Executive students will engage in courses taught in a hybrid format of online and in-person classes that meet intermittently on Saturdays throughout the semester.
Graduates of the traditional MPA format have gone on to work for the City of Charleston, the City of North Charleston, MUSC, the American Heart Association, Charleston County School District, and other major public organizations in the Lowcountry and beyond.
Applications for the new Executive MPA are being accepted now through July 1st for a Fall 2019 start term. Those interested in learning more about the program should contact Program Director Dr. Judy Millesen at MillesenJL@cofc.edu.
