MPA International Public Service and Development Specialization

Applications for Fall 2015 are being accepted though June.

The International Public Service and Development (IPSD) specialization is one of four Master’s in Public Administration degree tracks offered by Rutgers University–Camden. The IPSD specialization combines graduate-level studies in Public Policy and Administration with coursework on community service, international development policy and administration, and nonprofit management.  

During their first year of academic studies, our students serve in a year-long internship in north Camden. After their first year, they then serve in the US Peace Corps for two years, or for one year in an alternative international assignment. 

Our program has an excellent track record of placing graduates in government organizations, international institutions, and private firms. Recent graduates have gone to work for organizations like the U.S. State Department, the Center for Disease Control, the U.S. Department for Aid and International Development, and a host of state and municipal government departments.
