Class Description:

The Public Affairs Leadership Cohort is a unique offering at the Humphrey School that is designed for mid-career professionals that integrates adult learning methodologies in a schedule that accommodates working adults. Three core (required) courses are offered in an integrated format and students can either apply the cohort experience to a U of Mn Regent's approved graduate certificate in Public Affairs Leadership (PAL) or towards the Masters in Public Affairs (MPA) degree. The six courses integrated into the MPA cohort are: 1) Leadership Foundations and Public Affairs Leadership, 2) Policy and Program Analysis, and 3) Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methods & Analysis I & II.


The cohort program focuses on developing a range of skills essential in public affairs through an intensive learning community. A theoretical framework emphasizing transformational leadership guides us and creates awareness that leadership is demonstrated through acts undertaken by many people, not just by those in formal authority positions. Leaders must have skills to address both technical and adaptive challenges and the content of these courses highlights those most critical to public policy and public affairs.


Who Should Take This Class?:
You must be enrolled in the Master of Public Affairs (MPA) degree, or the Public Affairs Leadership (PAL) certificate program to enroll in this course.
Exam Format:
No final exam.
