About the Certificate Programs

The Public Administration Department offers two graduate certificate programs: a Certificate in Arts Administration (in conjunction with the MFA degree offered by the Visual Studies Workshop), and a Certificate in Nonprofit Management.

The Certificate in Arts Administration is available only to students matriculated in either the Master of Public Administration (MPA) or Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program through the Visual Studies Workshop at the College at Brockport.

The Certificate in Nonprofit Management is available to students matriculated in graduate programs at Brockport other than the MPA program, and to students who have earned a baccalaureate degree who wish to apply only for the Certificate in Nonprofit Management.

Students applying to either of the Public Administration Certificate programs must meet regular MPA degree admission requirements. Eligibility to apply for the Certificate in Nonprofit Management requires a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university.
