The Institute for Public and nonprofit studies in conjunction with the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) presents the Local Government Practicum Program each fall semester. A special summer session is also available for students who would like to work on multiple or longer projects through the summer and fall semesters. This program offers MPA candidates experience conducting research and policy analysis for local government through practical application of their classroom knowledge to projects proposed by municipalities within the southeastern region of Georgia. MPA candidates are allowed to choose projects aligned with their interests and work individually,or in pairs on larger projects, under the direction of the course instructor. At the end of the fall semester each applicant presents the results of their work to an audience of municipal leaders, GMA officials, university leaders, and students at an event which is held at Georgia Southern University.
