Nonprofit Organizations Graduate Concentration/Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The graduate concentration in Nonprofit Organizations is available as a concentration within the MPA degree, or as a stand-alone certificate for non-degree students.  This program prepares students to become innovative and critical thinkers in the areas of nonprofit organizational management and public policy, with a unique approach that bridges theoretical knowledge with real-world experience.  As students prepare for their careers or advancement in their current positions, they gain insight into the interdependence between the nonprofit, public, and for-profit sectors.  Graduates are able to span the boundaries of these three sectors to assess community needs, navigate the realm of public policy, and strategically and effectively manage organizations that ultimately benefit society.


Students take two required courses as well as three electives approved by the concentration advisor, for a total of 15 hours.
