Why the MPA degree?. The Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree is the preferred degree if you are seeking a career in public service. Read more

Why the MPA degree?

The Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree is the preferred degree if you are seeking a career in public service. The MPA degree prepares students to be effective leaders, managers, and analysts in a wide range of public and nonprofit agencies and is universally recognized by prospective public and nonprofit employers.

Why the UTC MPA degree?

The UTC MPA program offers several strengths:

  • Our courses focus on equipping students with the knowledge and skills that they will need in their careers. This certainly includes learning important theories about different aspects of public administration because these theories are important tools for making sense of the complex tasks faced by public administrators. We are mindful, though, that we are not a “pre-Ph.D.” program. While students interested in pursuing doctorates are well prepared for that path, our primary purpose is preparing students for skillful public service.
  • All of our faculty are qualified both academically and through diverse professional experience as public administration practitioners. None of our courses are taught by graduate students.
  • The Chattanooga region is a great classroom. The area is known for innovations in local government management, a robust nonprofit sector, and creative collaboration among the region’s government, nonprofit, and for-profit sectors. (And Chattanooga is a great place to live, too!)
  • Our MPA students have the opportunity to prepare and test for the Certified Municipal Finance Officer exam, which opens up many opportunities for students interested in local government management.
  • We offer a predictable schedule that meets the needs of students who work traditional 8-5 jobs and enables all of our students to chart a clear path to program completion, whether in two years for our full-time students or longer for our part-time students. Review of completion rates for the 2012 fall semester cohort shows that 38% of students completed the program in two academic years, and 69% graduated within three academic years.
  • Our classes are quite small, generally ranging from 8 to 15 students, giving students access to their professors and cultivating a rich, interactive, supportive learning community.
  • The UTC MPA program is the only NASPAA-accredited program in east Tennessee, providing assurance that the program has met rigorous, globally recognized standards for quality.

Where do our graduates work?

The post-graduate experiences of our alumni demonstrate the wide applicability of the MPA degree. Graduates of UTC’s Master of Public Administration program find careers in a variety of settings, ranging from leadership positions in nonprofit agencies, to city and county management, to health care and insurance organizations, to local and regional planning. Some serve in higher education administration while others go on to doctoral studies and careers in academia. Some have built careers serving with the federal government or in the private sector. 

MPA Curriculum

Class scheduling

The MPA curriculum is delivered through traditional classroom courses, online courses, and hybrid courses (half online, half in classroom). Classes are scheduled to meet the needs of students working during the day. Traditional classroom courses meet once per week, 5:30 – 8:00 p.m., on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays; hybrid courses meet on these evenings, but every other week.

Courses are scheduled on a predictable rotation so that full-time students (usually three courses per semester, fall and spring) can complete the degree in two academic years. Part-time students usually complete the program within three or four years.

MPA courses and optional concentrations

MPA students complete eight core courses and four elective courses. Students without previous management experience in a public agency or nonprofit organization also complete a 300-hour internship.

The eight core courses (and their modes of delivery) are:

  • Public Administration Foundations (classroom)
  • Organizational Theory and Administrative Behavior (hybrid)
  • Public Administration Research and Analysis (classroom)
  • Program Planning and Evaluation (hybrid)
  • Budgeting and Finance in Public Agencies (classroom)
  • Human Resources Management in Public Agencies (hybrid)
  • Public Policy (classroom)
  • Applications in Public Administration, our capstone course (hybrid)

Students choose how to make the most of their four elective courses from three options. Students may use the elective courses toward one of two optional concentrations: 

(1) Local Government Management concentration

(2) Nonprofit Management concentration

Or, (3) students pursuing the generalist MPA degree select elective courses to meet their professional development goals in consultation with the MPA program coordinator. In addition to the MPA courses, these elective courses may include options from other UTC graduate programs with permission of their program coordinators.

Descriptions of MPA courses are available in the graduate catalog. Please note that the website may include minor changes to the curriculum that are not yet reflected in the catalog.

Accreditation

The UTC MPA program is the only NASPAA-accredited program in east Tennessee. NASPAA is the recognized global accrediting agency for MPA programs. Accreditation requires meeting high standards of public service education recognized across the public administration profession.

Study a Master's in Media, Art, Design and Technology in the Netherlands

Artists, designers and performers doing strange things with technology. That is what the MADtech study programme is about. You will be expected to employ and artistically explore hybrid technologies to imagine, interpret and change human interaction with a transforming world. You will apply a trial-and-error and tinker mentality, with play and experimentation forming key aspects in your development and receiving special emphasis in the research you do. This mentality, combined with a critical reflective attitude and conceptual skills, will lead to unexpected perspectives and result in artistic multimedia, performative or design work.

MADtech students come from various professional backgrounds and fields of media, art and design, and all share a fascination with technology. The combination of disciplines gives you an opportunity to develop your artistic vision while deploying a hybrid artistic practice as an autonomous artist, designer or performer. As your work engages with the world, you will grow both as an individual and in your artistic practice, reinforcing the power of your imagination and exploring your own connection to a transforming, technologically charged society.

Hybrid practice

The MADtech make-and-learn community and professional practice is a hybrid approach and a mixture of art forms, including autonomous, applied and performing arts. Your project and the purpose of your work will define what sets you apart from other professionals working in this domain, while you all share an artistic process and are connected by creative and technological workspaces and experimental collaboration. In this situation, the artistic process gives direction to multiple patterns of research. These patterns of research strengthen the artistic process and enlarge your future field of work. Within the MAdtech programme you can combine or specialise in one or more research areas in the fields of media, art and design, which are linked together by the concept of a technologically charged society, for example Artistic Technology Research, Happiness Design Research and Experimental Performance Research.

Past, present and future

No matter which research track your on, at MADtech we are continually seeking a dialogue between different viewpoints on the past, present and future: between art and science, between theoretical and applied research, stable and unstable media, old and new technologies, and local and global forms of society. This is a group process in which we share our views and ideas, work together and learn from each other. At the same time, you will also embark on your own path, improving your knowledge and skills, and learning to reflect critically on your own position, role and work and on the world around you.

Study a Master's in Painting in the Netherlands

You are keen to gain more insight into the innovative potential of painting in a rapidly changing world. You are aware of the forces of physicality and materiality in art work, and you take a painterly approach to conducting your experimental research into the functioning of perception psychology, cognition and imagination. A painting both reveals how ideas are imagined and shows how material is edited and used. Taking a painterly and critical approach means harnessing materiality to create new links and associations. By combining ideation and materiality, transforming your ideas into unexpected, meaningful and powerful images, you determine the meaning and significance of your work in contemporary society.

Past, present and future

All over the world, painting has been reinvented as a result of political changes, the digitisation of society, demand for a postcolonial perspective and the current runaway art market. Alongside its emphasis on materiality and ideation, the Painting programme responds to these developments by continually seeking a dialogue between different viewpoints on the past, present and future: between perception and cognition, image and language, stable and unstable media, old and new technologies and, in a broader sense, between art and science and both local and global forms of society. This allows us to collectively explore charted and uncharted territories whilst sharing our views and ideas, working in groups and learning from each other. At the same time, you will also embark on your own path, improving your knowledge and skills, and learning to reflect critically on your own position, role and work and on the world around you.

Hybrid practice

Students come to the Painting programme from a range of different areas, including art and design, but all share a fascination for painting. The mix of disciplines enables you to hone your artistic vision, working in a hybrid practice as a critical and engaged artist. As your art increasingly engages with the world, you will grow both as an individual and in your artistic practice, reinforcing the power of your imagination and exploring your own relationship to a transforming, technologically charged society.
