Master of Public Administration (MPA)

Cameron graduated in December of 2020 with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Georgia. An avid lover of governmental affairs, he spent his first four years on campus doing policy debate at the Phi Kappa Literary Society, working in the Director’s Office of the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, and writing for the Georgia Political Review. In his pursuit of a Master’s in Public Administration, he intends to specialize in the areas of housing, housing policy, and city planning and design in the hopes that a more intentional, inclusive, and equitable environment can be met in cities like Athens across the South.

Educational Experiences

In undergraduate studies, most of Cameron’s experience comes from studies on the politics of the American South, political economy, market interactions with the state, judicial modeling, and policy crafting. In graduate studies, Cameron hopes to delve more into administration of local governance, local policies on housing in the modern era, and intentional city planning in the wake of the climate crisis.

Career Goals

After graduating, Cameron hopes to work in a local housing authority in the South, attempting to rectify the inequities present in the modern development of housing policy that both caused the troubles of the market collapse in the 2000s and its ever-persistent fallout.
