    The certificate in Policy Administration is intended for students who are interested in pursuing a graduate-level education in an applied field. Completion of the 44-credit certificate provides a sharply-focused view of policy implementation and application within the American system of government. In addition, the certificate provides students the opportunity to receive advanced placement standing within EWU's master's program in Public Administration. Students who complete the certificate will be required to take 36 credits of MPA "core courses," instead of the normally-required 40, and will be required to complete 10 elective credits, rather than the usually-required 20. Acceptance to the certificate program requires that the student have at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average in all courses at EWU, and the approval of the certificate coordinator. In no course required for the certificate can the student receive below a 3.0, and all courses within the certificate must have a 3.3 minimum cumulative grade point average.

    All required courses for the certificate must be completed at EWU, transfer credits will not be accepted for certificate completion.

    Completion of this certificate will also satisfy the minor requirement for students completing majors where a minor is required.
