Designed specifically for veterans and military families — but open to anyone interested in public service — USF’s MA in Public Leadership program gives students the skills to succeed in public office, legislative affairs, advocacy, and civic leadership.

The program is a partnership between the University of San Francisco and Veterans Campaign, a nonpartisan organization that helps veterans transition to careers in public service.

Outstanding Faculty - Faculty are a diverse mix of traditional scholars and top practitioners offering essential experience and theoretical knowledge.

Designed for Working Professionals - Online instruction combined with six intensive in-person workshops allow students to complete the degree in either one year (full-time) or two years (part-time), and they have the option of enrolling in the fall, spring, or summer.

I've seen firsthand the selflessness, dedication, and leadership that veterans bring to the table — it's exactly what our country craves and what's too often missing in Washington. That's why I'm so excited to be part of a program that will help veterans translate their values and skills into successful political public service."
