Many students focus their electives into an optional concentration of study comprised of topical courses at School of Public Affairs and Administration (SPAA) as well as in departments and schools across campus. The concentration areas offered by SPAA mainly reflect the areas in which faculty do research and are a way to choose a set of courses that provide depth in a substantive public management area. Students who do not select a concentration area are expected to select courses that make academic sense.
