MARIST COLLEGE-LASDU ONLINE MASTER OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION (MPA) FLEXIBLE COHORT DEGREE PROGRAM
Marist College has offered the MPA degree since 1980 and, for 20 years, has partnered with law enforcement agencies in New York City, Albany, and Oneida to bring the program on-site and online to their respective departments. As part of the academic partnership between Marist College and LASDU, the MPA will be delivered as an online flexible degree program exclusively for law enforcement personnel.
MPA PROGRAM STRUCTURE
Marist’s MPA flexible cohort degree program is designed exclusively for law enforcement personnel and combines accelerated scheduling and a reduced pricing structure with the flexibility and convenience of Marist’s online course delivery system. Students in this program represent a diverse mix of law enforcement professionals from local, state, and federal agencies throughout New York State and the nation. This combination of experience provides for an intensely rich and beneficial learning experience and allows students the opportunity to widen their professional networks.
The MPA program is comprised of 39-42 credits of graduate coursework (13-14 courses). Students with less than two years of work experience in the public or non-profit sectors will be required to complete a Public Administration internship. Fall and spring courses are eight weeks in length and summer courses are six weeks. Semester breaks are included. The entire graduate degree program can be completed in just over two years.
