Public Administration

The SF State Master of Public Administration (MPA) Program offers students the opportunity to earn their MPA by taking a mix of in-person and hybrid courses in the heart of downtown San Francisco. The MPA Program is nationally accredited by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, & Administration (NASPAA). 

The SF State Public Administration is a pioneer in the field with using hybrid courses. Our program has operated effectively with the remote delivery of our curriculum (online, hybrid and face-to-face remote via Zoom) throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and is looking forward to another robust schedule of courses for Spring and Fall 2022.  

Be a part of our innovative and rewarding professional program, geared for working adults. Our program is built upon high impact educational practices, traditional and hybrid courses, a convenient location in downtown San Francisco right over the Powell Street BART Station, and the best value for your tuition dollar in the Bay Area.

Our Spring 2023 admissions deadline is November 1, with the review of completed applications to begin on a rolling basis, once completed.
