Masters of Public Administration (2 years)
Programme registration: This two-year Master's programme in Civil Administration combines three components: Knowledge, skills and practice. Besides key classes in the areas of PR analyses, constitutional state, economy and research methodologies, the programme offers the possibility to acquire and implement specialized knowledge.
Safety, governance, development, communication and university policy. During the spring, MPA undergraduates take part in a range of skill for impact sessions that build upon emotive smarts, consciousness, leadership, negotiating and team-building abilities, as well as hands-on abilities such as press briefing and filming. They are designed both for applications during the MPA programme and for postgraduate assignments.
A third part of the programme is the Application Policies Project, a nine-month collaboration between a team of college and high school clients, which allows them to combine classrooms and empirical studies in an advisory manner backed by the project manager, a faculty advisor and the clients' organisation. In the MPA programme, alumni develop the basis of our understanding and practical abilities to take a critical look at political process and debate, the methodologies for promoting and endorsing evidence-based policies, and a practitioner approach that allows them to move from "contemplation to application".
The SPP MPA graduate's holistic and experience-based view of education and training to make a real impact in the rapidly changing, increasingly complex and competitive market. Achieving and demonstrating skills is the most important goal of the MPA program:
Understanding how topics are "problematised" and politicised in different contexts at different levels - locally, nationally and globally; understanding the political processes from conception and execution to supervision and assessment in a critical manner and the capacity to recognise opportunities and starting points for commitment and advocacy; collecting and analysing information and other information resources necessary for evidence-based PR; awareness of the need for equality, conflicts, rights-based attitudes and principals that are essential for the development of just, equitable and open society.
