As of Fall 2012, we are no longer accepting applications for the Bachelor of Public Administration.
USF's Bachelor of Public Administration includes specialized curriculum focused on nonprofit administration. Teaching the fundamentals of nonprofit management, we prepare you for leadership in the nonprofit sector as reflective practitioners, integrating theory, work experience and commitment to social values. Concentration must be selected at time of admission.
Francine DiCiano, BPA ’08, Nonprofit Concentration
"In 2007, at the age of 52, I graduated from the University of San Francisco's program with a Bachelor's Degree in Public Administration with the Nonprofit Concentration. The quality of the program was excellent, exceeded my expectations and provided me with a manageable means to achieve my lifelong goal and dream of a college education. While attending, I applied newly acquired knowledge to improve and enhance the position I currently held. Soon after graduation I accepted a position as the Chief Operations Officer of the United Way of Stanislaus County. On a daily basis, I continue to utilize the valuable gift of a higher education that I received from the University of San Francisco."
