I found out about Troy University's MPA program. I specifically wanted to complete a program that was accredited by the organization and 100% online so that I could complete it regardless of military moves and/or deployments. Thankfully, Troy met both of those requirements for me.
As a stay at home mom I was afraid of losing my intellectual acumen, so I decided to pursue a graduate degree. Attending Troy University was a great move for me. Since the program is designed for working adults, it allowed me to balance my personal responsibilities with my professional desire. I enjoyed the rigorous and challenging program and truly feel that I am a “Master” in public administration.

My experience with the MPA program at Troy University has been very rewarding. I have had the privilege of learning under a great staff that has allowed me to get a greater understanding of the Public Administration career field that has further encouraged me to pursue an even higher level of education by seeking a PhD. It has definitely helped me prepare for future career goals and aspirations when I leave the military. I would certainly recommend Troy University to anyone that wants to continue their academic endeavors.

It is no cliché that Troy University’s MPA program is one of Atlanta’s best kept secrets, especially for current or new public administrators and healthcare professionals. My academic and professional development experience at Troy University exceeded far beyond my expectations. The interactive and flexible classes not only enhanced my skills and proficiency in public policy and administration, but also they presented new concepts and theories that were easy to apply to real world situations and improved my critical thinking and decision making. The enthusiasm and support from faculty, staff, and other graduate students are like no other and created an environment conducive for independent learning and team projects. From the availability of state-of-the-art technology to the incredible networking opportunities, I would recommend Troy University in Atlanta to any student or professional interested in furthering their education and careers in public administration. It’s definitely an investment worth exploring.

I had not attended any formal continuing education since receiving my Bachelor degree in 1989. I was hesitant at first to pursue a Master's degree since I was working full time and raising a family. However, while watching my wife go through the process with Troy University, I saw the customer service and the attention given to the students from the instructors. I immediately enrolled and have no regrets. The curriculum is fair and well-paced and the feedback from other students is very helpful. Every time I had a question, either for the instructors or the administration personnel, it was answered. Thank You, Troy University.
