This program also requires admission to both CHSS and Widener’s College of Arts and Sciences. The interdisciplinary program provides students with a master of education (MEd) in Human Sexuality Studies and a master of public administration (MPA). Students pursuing this program have the option of two distinct tracks: Public Policy and Non-Profit Management. The policy track is for individuals who desire to work at the intersection of policy, advocacy, and sexuality and is designed flexibly for the student to focus on work at the local, state, and federal levels. The non-profit management track is for individuals who want first-time training or would like to advance their skills to be leaders of non-profit and non-governmental organizations that work in the sexuality sector and the related areas. The MPA/MEd program takes 2 years to complete full-time or 4 years to complete part-time.
