Texas Tech Public Administration
Welcome to the Public Administration program at Texas Tech University. The Master of Public Administration (MPA), fully accredited by the NASPAA (National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration), provides professional knowledge and skills-based competence for working public administrators or students seeking a career as a manager or policy analyst in public or nonprofit agencies. Recipients of our degree enter the job market equipped with general public management skills and a specialization in a particular public sector or policy area such as non-profit management, fiscal administration, health administration, and health policy among others. The MPA is conferred and administered by the Department of Political Science in conjunction with the Center for Public Service. Our degree is offered in the following locations: Lubbock (Main Campus), Waco, and Dallas/Fort Worth (Collin College).
At Texas Tech, we are deeply concerned about teaching as well as research, and we offer a quality education with a high degree of interaction among faculty and students. We are committed to challenging students in the classroom and to providing a "cutting-edge" education. As a result, our students are often involved in real-world projects—working with faculty in the Earl Survey Research Lab, assisting with Center for Public Service projects, or by providing a public service to community organizations through service learning projects.
