Open houses describe Ph.D. in public administration

March 27, 2005

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's School of Public Affairs and Administration is holding two informational open houses about the university's Ph.D. in public administration program in Lansing.

The open houses are Tuesday, March 29, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Emeriti Lounge of Walwood Hall and Thursday, March 31, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the WMU-Lansing Campus. The Emeriti Lounge is located on the second floor of the west side of Walwood on WMU's East Campus in Kalamazoo.

The doctoral program in public administration is intended to advance the careers of those in the public, nonprofit and healthcare sectors, as well as to prepare individuals for academic and research-based careers, including teaching at the university level and working for think tanks or major consulting firms. The program offers a convenient approach to advanced education because coursework is conducted in the evenings at WMU's Lansing Campus. Applications to the program are currently being accepted for the fall 2005 semester. The application deadlines are April 30 for first consideration, and June 15 for final.

To reserve a spot at either open hours or to obtain more information, contact Dr. Matthew Mingus in the School of Public Affairs and Administration at (269) 387-8942 or the WMU-Lansing Campus at (517) 327-1480.
