At Penn's Fels Institute of Government, we've been educating students committed to making a difference in the world for 75 years. Our approach is distinctive--our small size and unique setting make the Fels program incredibly personal, and our practice-based curriculum, taught by practitioners and some of Penn's most distinguished faculty, keeps us closely focused on the tough but critical questions of how to get things done, how to achieve real world results, in challenging political environments.
We also practice what we teach through our Research and Consulting Group, which brings students together with seasoned researchers and consultants to partner with government agencies, nonprofit organizations, civic groups and other Penn departments to bring the academic resources of the University to bear on the challenges and opportunities facing the public sector.
The Fels Master of Public Administration (MPA) offers a broad-based education that prepares students for leadership roles in government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private firms engaging in public sector work. If you are committed to public service, the Fels MPA program will help you acquire the tools and understanding needed to be successful throughout your career.
