Master of Public Administration Degree for County Staff and Officials

This cohort sponsored by Department of Public Administration of California State University San Bernardino in collaboration with San Bernardino County is a practical, leadership-oriented curriculum designed to build and expand the foundational skills managers and executives need in order to be successful in today’s counties. The MPA at CSUSB is nationally accredited, and the faculty are nationally prominent instructor-scholars. 

The Public Administration program at CSUSB is nationally known as a leader in high quality online teaching. The program is designed to maximize flexibility, being largely asynchronous online learning in handy weekly modules (with weekly feedback), but will also include real-time videoconferencing. This substantially enhances the quality of interactions as well as student comfort in an online environment.  All classes feature county-level examples and exercises based on best-practices by counties in California and the United States.

This intensive two-year course of study is the only program of its kind for county staff interested in better serving their communities with their professional development.
  • Curriculum designed to address current issues in county government
  • Taught by nationally recognized public-sector leaders and seasoned CSUSB faculty members
  • Exceptional networking opportunities with other county leaders
