Public Administration

Chair’s Welcome

francine romeroWelcome to the Department of Public Administration at UTSA. We are all excited about the continued growth of our program, in terms of both students and faculty. We started our Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration & Policy (formerly the Bachelor of Public Administration (BPA) undergraduate degree, effective August 2020) in the fall of 2011 and believe that this program will serve a need for training future public and nonprofit employees.

We also offer the MPA program which is ideal for those that want to work in the public sector or want to advance in their current career; it’s the degree of choice for those who have a ‘passion for public service’.  The MPA program has been carefully reevaluated and honored with re-accreditation by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA).

I would like to welcome you to contact me to discuss our programs.  They are sure to meet your education and career goals.
