These interactive events provide an informal opportunity to ask questions, meet our current students and MPA community members, and explore aspects of the program in depth. Some admissions events are geared toward a specific format (online or on-campus), but most are applicable to anyone exploring the UNC MPA program in general.

The best way to learn about the UNC MPA program is to attend an admissions event.
