Ball State is an excellent place to earn your graduate degree. We offer convenience, abundant resources, excellent research opportunities, and top-notch faculty.Because returning to earn your advanced degree can be a challenge, we offer our graduate classes in the daytime and evening.

In the Masters of Public Administration program, our interdisciplinary concentrations allow you to draw on the strengths of multiple departments to pursue a course of study designed to support your specific career goals.

In addition, as a graduate student, you might qualify for a graduate assistantship to work in Bowen Center for Public Affairs or alongside faculty members who are working with state and local government. Both of these provide the opportunity to move beyond the classroom and gain some real-world experience.
