Eastern Kentucky University in spring 2014 will launch the state’s first fully online accredited Master’s of Public Administration degree program.

The program, which is designed to serve pre-service graduate students as well as those already working in the public sector, can be tailored to students’ career interests.

Students will choose from two tracks, and concentrations include but are not limited to corrections, juvenile justice, youth services, homeland security, emergency management, labor and employment, fire and emergency services, school safety and occupational safety. The community development MPA track prepares leaders with aspirations in nonprofit advocacy work, city management, zoning, strategic planning and related fields.

Coursework will conclude with the student’s choice of an internship or a directed research project. Applications for the first term are due Nov. 30.
