About the Master of Science Administration Department

Mission and Values

The Master of Science in Administration (MSA) degree is an interdisciplinary graduate program with an applied focus. Its central purpose is to prepare managers, administrators, and supervisors in both private and public sector environments to function effectively within all types of organizations and at all levels of administration. The MSA degree's main thrust is action-oriented, forward-looking management within a broad organizational perspective. This degree is highly sensitive to the constituencies and the demographic and cultural environments it serves. The uniqueness of this degree program is its ability to adapt the necessary academic processes and coursework to an organization's rapidly changing informational and technological needs.

Diversity and Inclusion

Our greatest strength results from our commitment to co-creating intellectual diversity through the free flow of ideas guided by our scholars from a diverse range of opinions and cultural backgrounds. We cherish different perspectives, affirm the dignity of every individual, and are dedicated to developing open-minded citizens for a pluralistic society. Therefore, we recognize the many injustices that impact our students, faculty, staff, and the broader community. By reflecting on all for whom we serve, we commit to ongoing dialogue and reflection within our department.
