COURSES

MPA5304 Introduction
to Public Finance (3 units)

“Public finance” as it is used in this course is the raising of revenues and spending of revenues by governments to achieve socially beneficial outcomes. This course will provide an overview of how the different levels of government in the U.S. raise and spend money and why they are given these responsibilities in the first place. The course content puts greater focus on state and local government and land-based financing tools.

MPA5308 Innovative Funding Strategies
for Social Change (3 units)

Building on the key principles of Public Finance, students in Innovative Funding Strategies for Social Change will examine how to engage in values-based public funding budgeting. This advanced class will use real case studies and subject matter experts to examine how to move the standard sources of funding for the public good. Students will look at grant funding, private foundation funding, and public/private partnerships to create layered funding sources for critical capital projects for social good. Utilizing their networks, students will be asked to identify a capital project and build a proposal for funding. Students will then develop a prospect list of funders. This list will be developed through a combination of their network and project-based research. Students will be able to use the work developed in this course for immediate professional implementation.

MPA5313 Legal Frameworks for
Public Administration (3 units)

Students will learn about historic and contemporary codified systems of rules that govern and regulate decision-making, agreements, policies, and laws for informing legal mandates and actions.
