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 (The Network of Schools of Public Policy, 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 areas such as non-profit management, public management, health care administration, and environmental policy and administration. 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, Sherman (Austin College), and Dallas/Fort Worth (Collin College).

Our program statistics are available here.

We also have an online degree program. Currently, we have a few courses that are asynchronous, but most courses are synchronous. The synchronous courses meet online at a scheduled time of 6:00-8:50 pm and join the face-to-face course held in Lubbock, TX.
