Public Service Defined…

InfoBox2 copyThe Institute for Public and Nonprofit Studies (IPNS) serves as the focal point for scholarship, teaching, and professional service in the fields of Public Administration and Public Policy at Georgia Southern University, throughout southeast Georgia, and beyond.  The IPNS was founded with the mission to advance excellence in public and nonprofit management, and our degree programs have a dramatic and positive effect on the lives of our graduates.

The IPNS is home to the nationally accredited and ranked Master of Public Administration (MPA) program and the online Certificate in Public and Nonprofit Management.

The curriculum emphasizes a management approach, emphasizing both the theoretical foundation and practical application of Public Administration.  The overarching goal is to prepare pre-service students for a career in public service, as well as provide advanced training to mid-career practitioners.  Our recent graduates have gone on to successful careers in local, state, and federal government, the nonprofit arena, and the private sector.

A Nationally Ranked Program…

The MPA program at Georgia Southern University was recently ranked as one of the best graduate programs in Public Affairs by U.S. News & World Report.  Through the IPNS, the MPA program is a member of the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council (NACC).
