The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Nonprofit Administration develops, educates, and empowers students to excel in nonprofit work—no matter what their current position or status. Students in the program benefit by interacting with classmates of diverse backgrounds—from current nonprofit workers and leaders to those new to the sector.
The uniquely focused, interdisciplinary, and inter-college program is a complete learning experience. It involves exposure to the field, practical instruction, and case-based education to link classroom instruction to real-world settings within nonprofit organizations. Students often report that their in-class learnings can be put into practice immediately.
Featuring intimate class sizes to ensure individualized attention and collaboration, students will develop leadership, team-building skills, ethical value frameworks and practices, nonprofit financial, and resource management skills. Classes and coursework are also offered to support specific areas of interest, such as fundraising, advocacy, law, public policy, and more.
The program challenges students to question the status quo, discover answers together, and move the needle to improve their agencies and change their communities.
