MPP and MPA Programs

University of Pittsburgh, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) - MPA, MPIA, MID

Program Comparison Highlights

Institutional Structure: The School of Public and International Affairs is one of 16 Schools and Colleges at the University of Pittsburgh (at http://www.pitt.edu/academics/schools-colleges, accessed 23 June 2015).

Curriculum Design: The Pittsburgh GSPIA MPA is similar to the Columbia SIPA MPA in that it is one of the few MPA degrees that is offered by a school that also specializes in international affairs. With an 18-course degree (including the attribution of 2 for the required internship), the GSPIA MPA has a relatively high course requirement and offers a large number of courses (128) within its program. Our PEACO calculations below suggest that typical students in the Public and Nonprofit Management (PNPM) major take about 63% of their course work in policy-oriented subjects and 37% in management-oriented subjects and about 22% of their course work in subjects with high math-economics content, while typical students in the Policy Research and Analysis (PRA) major take about 71% of their course work in policy-oriented subjects and 29% in management-oriented subjects and about 29% of their course work in subjects with high math-economics content. This places the Pittsburgh MPA in the "high course requirement, highly policy-oriented, higher math-economics content" curricular type, along with such programs as the Michigan MPP and the Berkeley MPP (see MPP/MPA Curricular Types). The Pittsburgh MPIA and MID programs have similar characteristics, with more emphasis on policy-oriented subjects, and in particular of "archetypal international affairs" subjects. The competency gap analysis below suggests that a Pittsburgh MPA student taking the required courses and a random selection of listed electives would, on average, graduate with approximately 28 course-weeks of shortfall in the core-competency subject matter identified in MPP/MPA Core Competencies, including shortfalls of 8 course-weeks in Leadership Skills, 5 course-weeks in Socioeconomic and Political Context and 3 course-weeks in Ethics, Rights and Accountability. On the other hand, these students would graduate with substantially more than the minimum training in other core competencies such as Policy and Management Analysis; Economic Analysis; Public Financial Management; and Evaluation and Performance Management.

Professional Program Features: The GSPIA makes extensive use of current and former practitioners in its teaching. Students have access to professional development modules, an Office of Career Services, including GSPIA Connections, a career management system for students and alumni.career counselling services and co-curricular activities with a professional focus. There is a Fund for Student Initiatives. There are 10 research centres and initiatives listed at Centers, Institutes and Initiatives: The Matthew B. Ridgway Center for International Security Studies; The Ford Institute for Human Security; The Center for Metropolitan Studies; Johnson Institute for Responsible Leadership; Center for Disaster Management; The Roscoe Robinson Jr. Memorial Lecture Series; The Philanthropy Forum; International Political Economy Colloquium (IPEC); The Governance Group; and the Symposium on Political Violence.

Marketing Approach: "GSPIA is a professional school with a diverse, cosmopolitan community of faculty, staff, students and alumni. Believing in our ability to make the world a better place, GSPIA hones the passion of its students into purposeful direction and action. As part of the University of Pittsburgh, we’re a leader in education, a pioneer in research and a partner in regional development—as well as one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the United States. Throughout its 50-year history, GSPIA has created a legacy that inspires graduates to make public institutions better, create a higher quality of government and promote social responsibility throughout the world." (At http://www.gspia.pitt.edu/AboutGSPIA/tabid/59/Default.aspx, accessed 23 June 2015.) "LOCAL-TO-GLOBAL DISTINCTION: GSPIA is one of only 3 comprehensive schools of public and international affairs—the other two are the Maxwell School at Syracuse and the Humphrey School at Minnesota—that offer both an International Affairs program distinguished enough for full membership in APSIA (the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs) and a top-20 program in City Management and Urban Policy (US News, 2012)." (At http://www.gspia.pitt.edu/AboutGSPIA/GSPIAFacts/tabid/63/Default.aspx, accessed 23 June 2015.) 

Degrees Awarded per Year: 175 new students admitted to all the programs each year (at http://www.gspia.pitt.edu/AboutGSPIA/GSPIAFacts/tabid/63/Default.aspx, acceded 23 June 2015).

Academic Unit within University: The School of Public and International Affairs is one of 16 Schools and Colleges at the University of Pittsburgh (at http://www.pitt.edu/academics/schools-colleges, accessed 23 June 2015).

Related Academic Units and Degrees: There are three main Master’s degree programs at GSPIA: the Master of Public Administration (MPA), Master of Public & International Affairs (MPIA) and Master of International Development (MID) (For mid-career professionals there is also the Master of Public Policy & Management (MPPM) degree that can be completed in one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study.) There is also a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program in public and international affairs requiring three to four years of full-time study. (At http://www.gspia.pitt.edu/Academics/DegreePrograms/tabid/87/Default.aspx, accessed 23 June 2015.)

Posted Tuition: $21,442 per year for Pennsylvania Residents and $34,660 for Non-Residents for 2014-15 (at http://www.gspia.pitt.edu/ProspectiveStudents/TuitionFees/tabid/78/Default.aspx, accessed 3 June 2015).

Concentration/Curriculum Overview

MPA, MPIA and MID Degree Requirements

Summary: Each of the three degree programs are 48 credits (16 one-semester course equivalents) plus a 300-hour internship counted for purposes of the Atlas as 2 one-semester course equivalents. All three degrees share an 18 credit GSPIA Core. The MPA program has five majors: Energy and Environment, Public & Nonprofit Management, Urban Affairs & Planning, Governance & International Public Management or Policy Research & Analysis. The MPIA program has three majors: International Political Economy, Human Security, or Security & Intelligence Studies. The MID program has five majors: Energy & Environment, Human Security, Nongovernmental Organizations & Civil Society, Urban Affairs & Planning, or Governance & International Public Management. Students from any of the three degrees may also pursue a minor consisting of a 9-credit sequence of courses within a chosen subject area in any of these fields, or in any of the following fields offered by GSPIA’s other degree programs: Civil Security & Disaster Management, Energy & Environment, Non-governmental Organizations & Civil Society, Public & Nonprofit Management, Policy Research & Analysis, Governance & International Public Management, or Urban Affairs & Planning. MPIA students are eligible to combine their Master’s degree with a graduate certificate from the University Center for International Studies, specializing in Africa, Asia, western Europe, eastern Europe, the European Union, Latin America, or Russia.

Duration: Degrees are completed in 20 months of full-time study or may be completed on a part-time basis. There are two opportunities to apply to GSPIA each year. Students may begin any of the master’s degree programs in either the fall or spring terms. Applications to the doctoral program are for the fall term only. Applications to the MPPM and non-degree programs are accepted for the fall, spring, or summer terms.
