The Capstone Project and Assessment in Public Administration is a culminating experience in the program, designed to synthesize and apply key concepts from the curriculum to contemporary issues in public administration. The core of the course activities involves students completing an applied research project that not only draws upon the comprehensive knowledge acquired throughout their studies but also addresses real-world challenges in the field. This project serves as a demonstration of the student's ability to effectively integrate theoretical insights with practical applications, preparing them for successful careers in public administration. Furthermore, students will have opportunities to evaluate their competencies in public administration, with guidance primarily from the NASPAA Universal Competencies and the MPA learning outcomes.
