Troy University bringing MPA classes to downtown Atlanta

Posted: Thursday, 07 April 2016

ATLANTA-Troy University is launching a new Master's at Work program that combines the flexibility of online learning with an in-class experience conveniently located in downtown Atlanta.

Designed with working adults in mind, Master's at Work allows students to earn a Master in Public Administration degree in a hybrid online and in-class format. The in-class portion will be taught at the Hampton Inn at 161 Spring Street NW in downtown Atlanta, putting classes within walking distance for many students working in the area.

"Master's at Work allows students to begin the Master of Public Administration program in the classroom in close proximity to their own workplace in order to become acclimated to graduate level coursework as well as TROY's online learning platform," said Staci Hutto, area coordinator for Troy University in Atlanta.

Students will take three courses in-class, and the remaining nine courses online. The entire program can be completed in less than two years. All students in the program can take advantage of resources offered through TROY's Atlanta Support Center, including student support services, close access to faculty, and a network of fellow students.

"TROY's Masters at Work program will allow adult students to balance life's responsibilities with the pursuit of higher education," Hutto said. "One of the unique elements of a being a TROY student is the personal attention that our students receive from their professors, and the support they have."

The Masters at Work program starts in August, and the deadline to apply is July 22. For the program's launch, TROY is offering a number of special discounts for students who apply early, including:

  • $50 Application Fee Waiver,
  • $70 MAT Test Fee Waiver,
  • Horizon Scholarship awarded upon admittance (pays for 3 courses), and
  • Concierge admissions/student services representative.

Master's at Work adds to the services Troy University offers to working adults in Atlanta. For 20 years TROY has maintained a location in Atlanta focused on helping professionals advance their careers through flexible degree options. Troy University's Atlanta Support Center is located at 1117 Perimeter Center West Suite N101.
