Master of Public Administration (MPA)

Alison graduated from the University of Georgia in 2018 with an AB in History and International Affairs and then spent a year in DC serving as an AmeriCorps Member with City Year Washington DC. In this role, she worked with 6th graders in an English classroom and learned how to work effectively in the nonprofit and education field. Alison furthered her experience in the public sector through a summer internship with the PBS Foundation before returning to UGA to begin the MPA program.
