Course Schedule

Person using mouseThe UCCS School of Public Affairs is flexible in its delivery of course, offering both online and on campus courses each semester. The Master of Public Administration (MPA), Master of Criminal Justice (MCJ) and all graduate certificates are available online.

For the Master of Public Administration (MPA), the School of Public Affairs plans to offer all core classes every fall and every spring semester. Half of the core classes are offered online and the other half of the core classes are offered on campus. Each semester the delivery (on campus or online) is alternated. Those core courses offered on campus one semester are offered online the following (excluding summer) and vice versa. Students are expected to complete PAD 5001 within their first two semesters of enrollment. For the Master of Criminal Justice (MCJ) the School of Public Affairs plans to offer either on campus or online two of the core courses each fall and the other two core courses each spring. Therefore, each semester there could be two core courses online or one core course online and one core course on campus.

Elective courses for both the MPA and MCJ may be offered online or on campus. Some students find matching a core course with an elective course works well. The School of Public Affairs does not recommend completing all core courses before enrolling in electives. If there is an elective that you find interesting or is particularly relevant to your degree plan, you should enroll in that elective that semester as specific elective courses are not always offered on a regular repeating schedule.

Please note: Students are expected to complete all core courses prior to registering for the capstone seminar or master's thesis. In no case can any student enroll for thesis hours or the capstone seminar prior to completing PAD 5003 Research and Analytic Methods/CJ 5003 Research Methods.
