New Gally Degree

Gallaudet will begin offering an MPA graduate degree this fall. That's a Master of Public Administration. The 40 credit program will include classes on management ethics, strategic leadership and management, and budgeting in public sector and nonprofit organizations. Classes will be offered at night and in the summer. President T. Alan Hurwitz says, "By introducing this program - in a format that is fully accessible in ASL and English - our goal is to help those employees attain the required educational level [needed] for advancement and develop effective managerial skills so they have a greater opportunity to take on leadership roles in public and nonprofit sectors."
