Recently, the University of Missouri unveiled its new online Master of Public Affairs program, which will begin in Spring 2014. I am very interested in the program, but I am concerned that my future ability to teach as an adjunct instructor might be limited with Missouri's degree (as opposed to obtaining a Master of Public Administration or Master of Political Science degree). Can anyone tell me what the Master of Public Affairs degree might prepare me (or anyone else) to teach? Any other thoughts or input about the difference between public affairs, public administration, and/or political science graduate degrees? Thanks for your help!
