Complex social or policy issues aren’t solved individually, they require shared solutions—and your MPA program will foster that process. As part of your studies, you’ll take a capstone course, typically in your final semester—it is the cumulative achievement of your MPA degree. You’ll team up with a group of student peers to tackle a multidisciplinary problem—often for a real-world client located in the U.S. or abroad.
Real and relevant research
Your student group will perform a semester-long, detailed analysis of a policy or management issue on an integrative project.
Primed for professional success
In your Capstone course, you’ll demonstrate specialized expertise as part of a collaborative effort, and all Capstone projects culminate in a formal report and public presentation. In short, the Capstone constitutes unparalleled preparation for your future career.
