NASPAA Accreditation. The Troy University Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree is accredited by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs and Administration (NASPAA).
The Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs and Administration (NASPAA) is the membership association of graduate programs in public administration, public policy and public affairs. Its twofold mission is to ensure excellence in education and training for public service and to promote the ideal of public service. NASPAA accreditation recognizes that a master's program in public affairs has gone through a rigorous process of voluntary peer review conducted by the Commission on Peer Review and Accreditation (COPRA), and has met NASPAA's Standards for Professional Master's Degree Programs in Public Affairs, Policy and Administration. Once a program elects to go through the accreditation process, it begins by conducting a one year-long self study, which is then submitted to COPRA. COPRA reviews the self study, and then continues the process with a three day campus visit by a COPRA-appointed site visit team. The process culminates in a final review by COPRA, which makes a decision as to whether the program is in conformity with the Standards.
