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 Fall 2016 quarter, the 1st Year Core course is “The Context of Public Administration.” Visitors are welcome from October 6th (week 2) through November 17th (week 8).
- Fall quarter 1st Year Core meets in the Seminar 2 building complex, D building, Room D1105 (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:
- Visit part of a 1st Year Core or a Tribal Governance concentration course, which meet during Fall, Winter and Spring on alternating weekends.
- In the Spring quarter, the 1st Year Core course is “Policy, Finance and Budgeting for Public Administration-Tribal.” The Tribal Governance concentration course is “Tribal Organizations.”
- For more information about arranging a class visit, contact Assistant MPA Director—Tribal Puanani Nihoa.
