(5 cr. per term for a minimum of four terms = 20 cr.) The professional administrative study results in a formal manuscript designed and written to address a problem in public administration practice. Each DPA student is required to complete a professional administrative study paper and four quarters of DDPA 8400 with a satisfactory grade. The professional administrative study paper involves students’ completing an applied research project that addressed an actual problem or planning situation. Students work under the direction of a faculty chair and a second faculty mentor. The professional administrative study paper takes the format of a consulting report and, at a minimum, includes the following sections:

  • Executive Summary
  • Situation or Problem Description
