MPA program benefits and distinctives

Few professions provide the opportunity to have a profound impact on the lives of others. Consistent with CCU's vision, mission, and strategic priorities, the MPA program will train you to be a leader who wants to transform your community and impact our culture in support of limited government, personal freedom, free markets, natural law, and original intent of the Constitution.

Students come from a wide range of demographic, occupational, and personal backgrounds, yet share a common goal to develop leadership competencies necessary to address the changing public priorities of the 21st century with an integration of biblical principles.

As an MPA student, you'll enjoy small classes with other working adults who bring the richness of diverse backgrounds to online discussions, adding dimension to the program. The program is designed to accommodate part-time, mid-career students, as well as full-time students.
