Gallaudet University Launches MPA Program for Students with Hearing Loss

Beginning in the fall 2012 semester, Gallaudet University will
offer a Master’s of Public Administration (MPA) degree for students who
are deaf or hard of hearing. Students who enroll in the 40-credit
program can expect to take courses such as ethics in management,
strategic leadership and management, and budgeting in public sector and
nonprofit organizations. Additionally, they will be able to take
evening, weekend and summer classes. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
(BLS) reports that city managers, medical or healthcare
managers and senior advocacy, grantmaking and civic organization work
are the types of jobs in which an MPA degree is necessary.
