In 2017, the Department of Public Administration and Policy established a dual Master of Public Administration program for graduate students at the Seoul National University Graduate School of Public Administration (SNU GSPA) and the University of Georgia’s School of Public and International Affairs (UGA SPIA). This partnership allows for an integrated program of study that lets students, mostly mid to senior level South Korean government officials, earn degrees from both programs/institutions in two years: one year completed at SNU GSPA and another year completed at UGA SPIA.
