Visit A Class
Visit 1st Year Core to see for yourself what the MPA program is really like.
For the Public & Nonprofit Administration and Public Policy concentrations (which meet together as one group, the "PNAPP" cohort):
- Visit one night of 1st Year Core, which meets during Fall, Winter and Spring quarters on Thursday nights from 6 to 10 pm.
- Feel welcome to drop by — just notify faculty when you get there, and you can drop in for a few minutes or stay until 10 pm, whatever works for you!
- Get a good feel for class by observing and then talking with current students and faculty at the break: we ask that visitors minimize participation in class and seminar discussions.
- In the Spring 2017 quarter, the 1st Year Core course is “Public Policy, Finance and Budgeting for Public Administration.” Visitors are welcome April 13 (week 2), then April 27 (week 4) through June 1 (week 9).
- Spring quarter 1st Year Core meets in the Seminar 2 building complex, *D* building, Room D1105 (ground floor).
- Plan to get to campus by 5:40 to have time to park and make your way to class. Parking costs $3—cash only—and the closest parking is in Lot C.
- See the MPA Course Syllabi page for the course syllabus, which you can use to plan your visit if you wish: the syllabus includes a schedule of topics that will be discussed each week.
- Campus map and directions
For the Tribal Governance concentration/cohort:
