College of New Rochelle Offers New MPA Program in Orange County

The College of New Rochelle partners with John S. Burke Catholic High School to bring a new MPA program to Orange County

Starting in the fall of 2015, a new college degree program will offer residents in Orange County and the surrounding communities the opportunity to earn their MPA when the College of New Rochelle offers its brand-new Master’s in Public Administration program at John S. Burke Catholic High School in Goshen.

During the 36-credit course, students learn about management and leadership, organizational theory, public policy formulation, human resource management, budgeting and finance, and program evaluation. Chaired by Dr. Malcolm Oliver, Assistant Professor in Public Administration at the College of New Rochelle, the program aims to provide the necessary experience and training to earn a degree — and pursue a career — in public service.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with a fellow Catholic institution through this collaboration that will deliver higher education opportunities to the people of Orange County,” says Judith Huntington, president of the college. “We hope this will be the start of a strong connection between our schools, and hope to be able to expand the program offerings to include additional graduate and undergraduate degrees in the future.”
