Certificate Requirements

The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) in Public Administration is a 12-credit certificate, and is for midcareer professional who cannot leave work to complete the entire EMPA but still desire a rigorous educational experience focusing on significant elements of public administration. The certificate can be completed in two ways: as a full-time student for one semester (roughly 15 weeks), or on a part-time basis completing the course work in 1-3 years.

To complete the certificate, students are required to complete 12-credits of course work from Public Administration course offerings (recognized by a PAI prefix), including one required course, PAI 895  - Executive Education Seminar: Managerial Leadership. Most individuals taking the certificate state an interest in improving their management and leadership skills or an interest in developing concrete knowledge in a specific policy area. This certificate can be concurrently pursued with the EMIR degree.
