Visit A Class
Visit 1st Year Core to see for yourself what the MPA program is really like.
For the Public & Nonprofit Administration and Public Policy concentrations (which meet together as one group, the "PNAPP" cohort);
- Visit one night of 1st Year Core, which meets during Fall, Winter and Spring quarters on Thursday nights from 6 to 10 pm.
- Feel welcome to drop by — just notify faculty when you get there, and you can drop in for a few minutes or stay until 10 pm, whatever works for you!
- Get a good feel for class by observing and then talking with current students and faculty at the break: we ask that visitors minimize participation in class and seminar discussions.
- See academic calendar for specific dates. You can find the location of a given offering by going to the MPA catalog, clicking on the 1st Year Core title, and then scrolling down and clicking on Final Schedule and Room Assignment.
- Plan to get to campus by 5:40 to have time to park and make your way to class. Parking costs $3—cash only—and the closest parking is in Lot C.
- Campus map and directions
For the Tribal Governance concentration/cohort;
- Visit part of a 1st Year Core or a Tribal Governance concentration course, which meet during Fall, Winter and Spring on alternating weekends.
- For more information about arranging a class visit, contact Assistant MPA Director—Tribal Governance Puanani Nihoa.
You can also check our MPA Course Syllabi page for the syllabus (and for other courses, too).
Evergreen offers tours Monday – Friday at 11 am or 2:30 pm from the Admissions office in the bottom floor of the Library Building. No need to register.
