Master of Public Administration Curriculum
The Hilbert College graduate degree in Public Administration consists of 36 Credits. The mode of study is based on an accelerated cohort model. Students accepted into the program begin in August or February and accompany each other thoughout the program, taking one course every 5 weeks. The cohort model encourages the development of life long connections and colleagues in the field as you work on group projects, discuss policy and move through the eighteen month program.
Hilbert offers the only accelerated cohort model MPA program in western New York. With the city of Buffalo 10 minutes away, we expect our graduates to be highly marketable within Erie county and throughout the United States.
Hilbert College is now accepting applications for the August 2014 cohort.
