With the campus situated only a few miles from downtown Houston and in the center of over 5 million people, 133 cities, 79 independent school districts, 727 municipal utility district, and hundreds of special districts, the University of Houston MPA Program is appropriately metropolitan driven.

It focuses on issues of major interest to major metropolitan areas.
