Rutgers SPAA Offering 100% Online Bachelor's Degree in Public and Nonprofit Administration Starting Fall 2023

Starting this fall, students at Rutgers SPAA can earn their Bachelor of Arts in Public and Nonprofit Administration completely online. Designed to prepare students for careers or advanced study in public and nonprofit administration, the undergraduate program is rooted in the concept of experiential learning and is not solely focused on traditional academic coursework. The curriculum gives students a hands-on educational experience through internships and projects that provide the practical knowledge and skills required to enter rewarding careers in government or the nonprofit sector in a variety of policy areas, now with the flexibility of online learning.

The undergraduate major at SPAA consists of 35 credits broken into three areas: core courses (15 credits), service-learning courses (5 credits), and electives (15 credits). Undergraduate students must complete an 18 credit second concentration, and 100% Online BA students must complete SPAA’s Accelerated MPA program as their second concentration.
