Master of Public Administration
The Master of Public Administration (MPA) is a professional degree for those pursuing administrative careers in government and non-profit organizations. The mission of the MPA program is to promote professional excellence in local and state administration in the public and non-profit sector, through teaching, research, and service.
Applicants to the MPA program must satisfy the following requirements:
- An undergraduate degree with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 calculated on a 4.0 basis.
- Scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). A combined score of 300 or higher for the verbal and quantitative portions of the GRE is preferred, and the examination must have been taken in the past two years. With permission, the applicant may substitute comparable scores for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) or the Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT).
- Three or four letters of recommendation which must be academic or employment related. These should be from individuals familiar with the applicant’s academic abilities and professional goals. Applicants who obtained their undergraduate degrees within the last five years must submit at least two academic letters.

Applications are available from the U.T. College of Graduate Studies (Telephone: 419-530-4723, http://www.utoledo.edu/graduate/). Many factors affect the admission decision. The most important are the undergraduate academic record and performance on the GRE or equivalent test. The application process takes about one month. Applications are considered and students admitted throughout the year, but the committee prefers that students begin in August.
