Welcome to the webpage of Administrative Studies programs at the School of Social Work and Administrative Studies in Marywood University. We offer three graduate degrees: the Master of Public Administration (MPA), the Master of Health Service Administration (MHSA), and the Master of Science in Gerontology (MS-GER), as well as a B.A. in Health Services Administration (general and Gerontology tracks).

Administrative Studies programs at Marywood University value public service and view their purpose driven by democratic and ethical paradigms to serve the public interest. Our programs focuse on civic engagement and public responsibilities on local, national and international levels and as part of a green movement. Our curriculum combines theory with practical skills aiming to develop conceptual, analytical, and ethical applications for administrative problems in the public and non-profit sectors.

We provide helpful and relevant methodology that integrates theoretical elements with practical skills. With classes scheduled after 6 PM or provided online, our curriculum is designed for full-time and in-career students who come from different geographical areas within the United States and the world and from a wide variety of professional and academic backgrounds. By maintaining active involvement in public service, we create effective networking within the public and nonprofit sector while preparing students for leadership positions on local, state, national and international levels. Our faculty expertise include all substantive policy areas which enable them to teach, advise, research, and serve both the profession and the community. Read more about our programs.
