We invite you to explore the opportunities that the University of Wisconsin (UW) Oshkosh and the Public Administration Department have to offer you!

Our mission is to provide graduate and undergraduate students with an understanding of the field of the public administration and the leadership skills required for public service. We envision UW Oshkosh Public Administration graduates to be exceptional leaders in their public service organizations and communities.

With its commitment to academic rigor, public service, and leadership excellence, the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program is one of the best in the state of Wisconsin. It allows students to pursue a management degree from an accredited university at their own pace and in a convenient format. It is open to mid-career professionals as well as those looking to begin their careers. Students will receive instruction from dedicated faculty members and practitioners in the field. Students will also have many networking opportunities with classmates and administrators from a variety of organizations. 

The MPA program at UW Oshkosh also ranks high on affordability among similar private and public institutions in Wisconsin while delivering quality, marketability, and convenience. As of Fall 2014, MPA courses at UW Oshkosh cost $480.86 per credit-hour (resident), with no additional fees assessed. Completion of the MPA program requires 36-credit hours.

The 15-credit Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management is designed for students who wish to enhance their skills in health care management and leadership to function effectively in today's complex health care environment.

The 24-credit undergraduate Public Administration Minor provides students with the knowledge to begin a public administration career and to help them make important decisions about what direction they want their career to take.

All three programs embody the department's core values of inclusivity, responsiveness, service, teaching excellence and faculty satisfaction.
