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.
  • In the Winter 2017 quarter, the 1st Year Core course is “Doing Democratic Public Administration.” Visitors are welcome from January 19th (week 2) through March 2nd (week 8).
  • Winter quarter 1st Year Core meets in the Seminar 2 building complex, *E* building, Room E1105 (ground floor).
  • 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:
