European Studies + SPEA

European Studies + School of Public and Environmental Affairs

Master of Arts/Master of Public Affairs (MA/MPA)

EURO’s dual Master's degree with the highly-ranked School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) is for students interested in pursuing employment in the public or nonprofit sector. The dual degree is a three-year program that awards both an MA and MPA degree. Students can finish this dual program in 60 credit hours rather than the 78 credit hours necessary to earn the two degrees separately.

Why get an MA/MPA?

While SPEA courses focus on management, analytical skills, and professional development, the MA program gives students the opportunity to study languages, cultures, politics, history, and economics, gaining in-depth knowledge of a particular country or region. Cross-cultural knowledge can be beneficial for those who enter the public service and invaluable to those pursuing international careers. SPEA also offers several graduate-level study abroad programs in West European countries.

My studies for the M.A./M.P.A instilled an interdisciplinary approach to academics, which in teaching is very valuable.
