MPA Tacoma

The Evergreen Master of Public Administration (MPA) Program has expanded to Tacoma.

Our next Tacoma cohort will be in Fall 2023

We are excited to bring our well-respected Master of Public Administration (MPA) program to our Evergreen Tacoma site, right in the historic Hilltop neighborhood. In Fall 2019, The Evergreen State College launched its first MPA Tacoma cohort!  

Evergreen's MPA program offers a professional education designed to prepare students for the challenges and opportunities of a career in public service as well as in nonprofit and business organizations. Evergreen MPA students and alumni advocate powerfully on behalf of the public, imagine new possibilities, and accomplish positive change in their workplaces and communities.

Can I Take MPA Tacoma Electives? 

Yes! Olympia and Tacoma students can take electives at either location.

All students admitted to the MPA Program are admitted to one of our three (3) learning communities: Tribal Governance cohort, Tacoma Public & Nonprofit Administration and Public Policy (PNAPP) cohort, or Olympia PNAPP cohort. Being admitted into a particular cohort is a choice the MPA applicant makes as part of the admissions process. It is important to note that once admitted to one of the three learning communities or cohorts, applicants will not be able to switch from one cohort to another.
