MPA Handbook 11-12
Internships are strongly recommended for those students who seek to test new career paths, gain skills, and forge connections with practitioners in the field. Employers seek out our students because of their maturity, technical skills, and cutting-edge theoretical knowledge.
The IPS faculty and staff work together with the Career Services Center to provide practical career development services to students. The Institute sponsors career events such as Job Club, a Public Administration Career Night, and symposia.
The MPA graduate student association represents student interests to the faculty and administration. The group also sponsors social and career events, represents the newly formed local chapter of the national public administration honor society, Pi Alpha Alpha, and collaborates with other club organizations on community service projects.
