MPP and MPA Programs

American University, School of Public Affairs (SPA)

Program Comparison Highlights

Institutional Structure: TO COME

Curriculum Design: The School of Public Affairs provides access to a comprehensive set of approximately 117 courses for American University's MPA and MPP degrees. Both degrees are described as two year (four term) full-time although, with 14 and 13 courses respectively, they have lower course requirements than many other two-year degrees (e.g., 18 at Berkeley, Chicago, Harvard and Princeton) and are in the same range as some of the one year (three term) degrees (e.g., 13 at Syracuse, 15 at most English MPP and MPA programs). Because American SPA's MPA and MPP are of similar length and have similar entrance requirements (particularly in not requiring substantial experience before entering the MPA) they provide an interesting illustration of how an MPP differs from an MPA, as articulated by one institution. As can be seen in the PEACO scores in block II above, the MPP and MPA are similar in giving a high weight to the Tools and Skills domain, with the MPP giving more weight to economics and quantitative methods while the MPA gives more weight to strategy and structure. A surprising difference is that, at least at this institution, the MPA has more course work in the Policy Sectors domain than the MPP. In comparing the distributions with MPPs and MPAs from other institutions, it can be seen that both American SPA degrees are at the upper range with respect to the proportion of instruction in the Tools and Skills domain (63% and 66% compared with 53% compared with, for example, 73% at Berkeley MPP, 59% at Duke MPP, 58% at Michigan MPP, 53% at Chicago MPP, 52% at Harvard MPP and Carnegie MPA, and 44% at Toronto MPP). The American SPA MPA and MPP are in the mid range with respect to the proportion of instruction in the Institutions and Context domain (9% and 14% compared with 7% at Berkeley MPP, 13% at Duke MPP, 15% at NYU MPA, 18% at Michigan MPP; 18% at Chicago MPP, 23% at Harvard MPP and 31% at Toronto MPP). Both American SPA degrees are in the mid range with respect to the proportion of instruction in the  Policy Sectors domain (20% and 9% compared to Michigan at 19%, Harvard at 22%, Oxford at 23%, Chicago MPP at 24%, and Toronto at 24%). The American SPA MPA and MPP degrees are in the mid range with respect to its proportion of instruction in the Management Functions domain (6% and 8% 6%, compared with 4% at Berkeley, 5% at Michigan, 6% at Chicago MPP, 7% at Carnegie MPA, 20% at Indiana and 22% at NYU). See Curriculum Comparison Tables, accessed 1 June 2014. Turning to Blocks III and IV above, it can be seen that both the MPA and MPP course offerings have a good alignment with the "NASPAA-require subjects" and that the typical MPA and MPP student will be exposed to 1.1 and 1.2 times the estimated course requirement to achieve NASPAA's fiver required competency domains.

Program Summary

Website: http://www.american.edu/spa/dpap/degrees/Master-of-Public-Administration.cfm

University: American University

Location: Washington D.C.

Degree: Master of Public Policy (MPP) and Master of Public Administration (MPA)

Marketing Approach: "Ranked among the top schools of its kind, American University’s School of Public Affairs offers education in the fields of political science, public administration, public policy, and justice. Our location in the scenic neighborhood of upper northwest Washington, D.C., our position, programs, and professors—all provide us a distinct advantage in educating and preparing leaders for careers in public service. As a graduate student here, you will benefit from a renowned and well-connected faculty, small classes, a strong curriculum, and, of course, access to institutions of power and people of influence. You will be in good company in the School of Public Affairs. Each year we enroll an experienced, academically strong, and diverse group of master’s and doctoral students. This past year, our students stemmed from nine different countries and all parts of the United States. Most have experience in the field (either internship, co-op, or full-time professional experience) and all are committed to public service, broadly defined. The “New Public Service” includes opportunities for work in the public, private, and nonprofit sector. Throughout your career, it is possible that you will move into and out of any of these three sectors, and the School of Public Affairs at American University provides you with the skills necessary to perform these transitions with fluidity."
