The online Master of Arts in Leadership in Public Administration is designed to give students new to public service the education and background needed to begin a career within the public sector, or to give experienced professionals already working within the public sector the tools needed to rise to managerial and administrative positions. Courses examine the political, legal, ethical, and social context of public administration from a Christian perspective in topics such as business, leadership, theology, and the public sector. Graduates are prepared for administrative careers with federal agencies, county government, national legislature, and politics, while the unique Christian perspective offered within the program is well suited for those who wish to work with Christian-based non-profits or organizations.
Students must possess a bachelor's degree earned with a 2.75 GPA or higher.
