The USC Price MPA: A High-Quality, In-Depth Program in an Interdisciplinary School

The MPA program is located in the Price School of Public Policy whose mission is to improve quality of life for people and their communities, in the US and abroad. USC Price offers degree programs in public administration, public policy, urban planning, real estate development, and health administration. These programs share some common core courses, international labs, research, and capstone experiences.

MPA students are encouraged to take courses as electives offered by related master’s degree programs. An MPA student’s peers today are an MPA graduate’s colleagues – developers, urban planners, policy analysts, and hospital and clinic managers – locally and globally tomorrow.
