Public Policy and Administration offers a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Administration, directed by Dr. Monica Hubbard.

The Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Administration draws upon interdisciplinary coursework to assist working professionals and students hone management and leadership skills and policy development expertise.  This Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Administration creates an opportunity for students who are in process on the MPA and candidates may complete up to one third of the program requirements prior to formal admissions.

Many students interested in public management combine the MPA or PhD programs in Public Policy and Administration with a graduate certificate in nonprofit administration and/or a certificate in conflict management. In particular, the MPA emphasis in general public administration meshes well with these types of certificates. For more information , please contact the program director.

Not all certificate programs are eligible for financial aid!
The Graduate Nonprofit Administration Certificate does not qualify for financial aid when pursued as a stand-alone certificate program.  This would only qualify when pursued in conjunction with an alternate qualified graduate degree (i.e.; Masters, Ph.D., etc.).
