School of Public Affairs

The School of Public Affairs is the home to Morehead State University’s Program of Distinction: the Institute for Regional Analysis and Public Policy. The Institute for Regional Analysis and Public Policy (IRAPP) integrates University resources with regional resources to develop the potential of our service region. Academic programs, research initiatives, and service activities connect MSU faculty and students in partnerships with citizens, political leaders, and policymakers to develop action plans that promote the sustainable development of our region. IRAPP offers the Regional Analysis and Public Policy (RAPP) program as well as the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program as described below.

The School of Public Affairs educates students in the fields of government, politics, regional analysis, public policy, and public administration in preparation for law school, graduate school, and rewarding careers in federal, state and local government, non-profit organizations, and the private sector. Our degree programs include a B.A. in Government, a B.A. in Public Policy, a M.A. in Government, and a Master of Public Administration (MPA). We also offer minors in Government and Regional Analysis and Public Policy (RAPP). The School of Public Affairs offers undergraduate and graduate scholarships and research assistantships, exciting internship and travel opportunities, and the chance to work closely with distinguished faculty from a wide range of backgrounds.

In addition to providing outstanding undergraduate and graduate education, the faculty and staff in the School of Public Affairs conduct research and perform outreach in areas such as national security, foreign policy, international relations, public health, environmental monitoring and restoration, hazards, GIS, political philosophy, public law, intergovernmental relations, federalism, and economic development.
