What do you like most about UT Tyler?
The flexibility of the program and the quality instructors. The MPA Cohort program that UT Tyler has with the City of Tyler was the perfect solution for me. I greatly needed to obtain my MPA to move forward with my career goals; however, my work schedule made attending traditional, daytime classes difficult. The Cohort program perfectly matches my schedule and provides courses relevant to my career. Thanks UT Tyler!
