Advisor: Vickie Edwards

The School of Public Affairs and Administration offers a minor in Nonprofit Administration. The 18 credit hours of coursework are divided into nine credit hours of required core courses, three credit hours of capstone or professional experience, and six credit hours of electives in order to fulfill the academic and professional needs of students. This program is designed to prepare students from a variety of majors for entry-level professional positions in nonprofit organizations.

Students minoring in Nonprofit Administration also have an option to earn the Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) designation from the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance. Doing so requires completion of PADM 3210, 3220, and 3230 (under the elective stream) and attendance at the Alliance Management Institute conference. This certification also requires students to earn a minimum grade of “C” in any course counted towards the certification and have the WMU NLA Campus Director attest to the fulfillment of the required competencies.

Capstone or Professional Experience (3 credit hours)


Additional courses from within the SPPA as well as other departments and colleges may qualify for elective credits with approval of the departmental advisor.
