Evans School Master of Public Administration (MPA) students are required to complete a 400-hour documented internship experience within a public, nonprofit, or private organization. Some students may already meet the internship requirement upon entry into the program. All students will submit an Internship Planning Form via in the first quarter to determine their status. Students entering with two or more years of recent, relevant professional experience will be evaluated to determine whether or not they've already met the internship requirement. For many students, the internship is a cornerstone experience, giving students an opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom to real-world problems, related to policy development, implementation and evaluation that directly align with your career goals.
