What is the Executive Master of Public Administration Field Experience?

The Executive Master of Public Administration degree program includes two different week-long field experiences.

For the National Field Experience, you have an opportunity to go to Washington D.C., and this gives professionals from the Pacific Northwest an opportunity to visit the sources of national policy with live case studies in Washington, DC.

For the international field experience, previous Cohorts have had opportunities to travel to Lanzhou, China and Seoul, Korea. In Lanzhou, the students participated in the Government Performance Management and Leadership Conference. In Seoul, the students were invited by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the University of Seoul to gain insight into other foreign cities’ public administration and public service process, and to experience and understand the heart of Korea’s politics, economy and culture during their stay in Asia’s central city.
