When you’re called to public service, it’s about redefining what’s possible— personally, professionally and socially. And it starts with a degree from the School for Public Affairs & Administration at Metropolitan College of New York.


Here, you’ll be challenged to look and see what can be made better, and then take the necessary action. It’s a formula for personal growth and professional success: One that will give you marketable skills that enable you to stand out from your peers—and stand for something bigger than yourself.
MCNY is an accredited, nonprofit private institution in the heart of Manhattan’s Financial District, and the School for Public Affairs and Administration offers an associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree in emergency management as well as a master’s degree in public affairs and administration. All our programs are designed for working professionals with accelerated timetables and flexible scheduling options. That’s the MCNY advantage.

It all begins with MCNY’s unique Purpose-Centered Education model

It combines instruction in the classroom with practice in the field. During each semester or Purpose, you take what you’ve learned and apply it to the real world through a Constructive Action (CA) project. In your CA, you will identify a real need or opportunity in an organization and, through scholarly research, propose a meaningful intervention. This intervention will have the potential to improve the lives of the citizens that you and your organization serve.

Our graduates go on to do great things: They improve existing non-profits and start new ones; lead government agencies and first-responder teams; they are socially responsible, contributing members of our global community who give back—while getting ahead.
