Students with a variety of backgrounds are considered for the program. Applicants must hold an undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university. Those students with no prior academic or practical experience in public administration will be required to take POLS 5200, Principles of Public Administration.
Admission decisions are based on an evaluation of three elements: undergraduate record, letters of recommendation, and scores on the Graduate Records Exam.
