Areas of Study

Maxwell’s MPA program offers eight areas of study. While choosing an area of study helps define a particular focus for our students, it does not limit a student’s coursework to a narrow framework. Students have the flexibility to complete the foundation courses in one area of study and augment these with electives from another.
