Public administration is a program of graduate professional study for the Master of Public Administration (MPA). It is nationally accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA). The program, instituted in 1974, develops competencies in administration, management and policy analysis for governmental, nonprofit and public service organizations. Students acquire basic knowledge and skills through the program’s core courses, while individual career objectives are met through one of three emphases: general, healthcare management or public safety. Within the general emphasis, students may specialize in nonprofit management. To receive the MPA, students complete 42-45 credits of graduate course work, an internship (if applicable), and an applied research paper (Portfolio or Project Paper). Courses carry three credits and typically meet once a week for a semester. Some courses are offered online through the Internet. Most courses are offered in the evening in downtown Rochester at the MetroCenter.

Always check the department’s Web site for the most current policies in effect at www.brockport.edu/pubadmin.

Admission Requirements
Eligibility to apply to the MPA program requires a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university (see the Graduate Admissions section in this catalog for further details) and evidence of potential to succeed at graduate study. No more than nine graduate credits earned in non-degree status at SUNY Brockport prior to a graduate student’s official matriculation date may be applied toward the degree program. Therefore, individuals are encouraged to apply for admission to the MPA program as soon as possible. Visit www.brockport.edu/graduate for details on the application deadlines for this program. Complete applications should be mailed directly to:

Office of Graduate Admissions
SUNY College at Brockport
350 New Campus Drive
Brockport, NY 14420-2915

More information regarding this process may be obtained from the department at (585) 395-2375, via e-mail at padmin@brockport.edu, from the Office of Graduate Admissions at (585) 395-5465, or via e-mail at gradadmit@brockport.edu.

To apply for admission, an applicant must submit the following as part of the self-managed application:

  1. the Application for Graduate Admission, including the Statement of Objectives;
  2. official transcripts of undergraduate and prior graduate work (except for transcripts from SUNY Brockport);
  3. three letters of recommendation from persons in a position to assess the applicant’s potential for significant academic or administrative achievements (e.g., professors, supervisors, business colleagues); and
  4. résumé (if applicants are to be considered “Inservice” status);
  5. test scores on the GRE General Exam if any of the following conditions apply:
    • applicant has less than an overall cumulative average of 3.0 in undergraduate study from the college or university granting applicant’s baccalaureate degree.
    • applicant’s undergraduate transcript shows a pattern of repeated courses with grades below “B.”
    • applicant graduated from an undergraduate institution that does not supply letter grades for 40 percent or more of the courses on the applicant’s transcript.

Note: If the applicant already possesses a master’s degree from an accredited institution, or has completed 30 credits or more of course work at the master’s level from an accredited institution with a graduate cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 for those graduate courses taken, the applicant does not have to take the GRE.

Those who wish to be considered Inservice should include with their admission application a résumé that details past organizational responsibilities and achievements (including position titles and organizations, beginning and ending dates, and any staff supervised). See degree requirements regarding Inservice students.

Any undergraduate major course of study provides acceptable preparation for the study of public administration.

The faculty reserve the right to deny admission even when minimum requirements are met.

Note: Political science students in the combined political science/public administration degree program who have completed at least 120 credits are determined to have graduate status, and are therefore at that point subject to the graduate policies of the Office of Graduate Studies and the Department of Public Administration.
