Academic Advising and Support

Students are advised to talk with MPA program faculty or the Assistant Directors for advice on their selection of courses, career plans, internships, choosing a concentration, difficulties they may be having in the program, or other concerns. Resources are also available on the MPA program website. There you can find the planned curriculum for the current academic year, course descriptions and syllabi, program requirements, and other helpful links.

The MPA and MES programs hire a Writing Assistant each year to assist students with writing assignments and writing skills improvement. In addition, there are other resources on campus that may be helpful, including the Career Development Center, First Peoples’ Advising, Access Services for Students with Disabilities, the Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning Centers, and the Student Health and Counseling Center.
