Program Details

The Master of Arts in Public Leadership is a 32-unit program that uses a hybrid approach, combining online courses with five on-site seminars. Students have the option of completing the program in either one or two years.

Students learn how to target, develop, and deliver political messages. The curriculum includes courses in ethics, leadership, and public policy, preparing students for ethical and informed public service.

During the capstone project, students create an in-depth campaign plan for a district or state. Students are required to complete a candidate interview similar to those conducted by various policy and political organizations and media outlets.
