Information for Students
SPIA students are among the best and brightest in the country. In recent years, we have had winners of Rhodes Scholarships, Truman Scholarships and numerous other notable awards that recognize the achievements of our students.
While the caliber of SPIA’s student body continues to be impressive, so too are the accomplishments of the School’s faculty. As a student at the School of Public and International Affairs, you will be studying with award-winning teacher-scholars who are devoted to excellence both in the classroom and in their areas of research. U.S. News & World Report continues to rank the School’s Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree program in the top four programs in the nation, ranked 4th (ahead of the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University at #5). Whether you are looking for an undergraduate or graduate program, you will find a rigorous and rewarding learning environment at UGA’s School of Public and International Affairs.
