As an adult, school might look and feel a little different this time around. Our Leadership and Public Service courses are designed to allow you the flexibility to complete the program while working, raising a family, or other obligations.

A Program That Fits Your Schedule

Our classes, led by professors who are experts in their fields, provide engaging content as you complete applied activities and participate in discussions that expose you to new perspectives.


Our 100% online degree program gives you the opportunity to earn the same degree as students who take in-person classes. The difference? You get to choose when and where you learn. Our online classrooms use many of the tools we're already using to create opportunities for meaningful learning and engagement with instructors, classmates, and course material. 

Don’t worry—we’ve put measures in place to ensure your success. In addition to support from your dedicated advisor, you’ll have access to plenty of learning tools and resources that can help you navigate. We want to see you become a leader in your profession, even if we only get to connect virtually.

All courses in the Leadership and Public Service program follow this format:

  • Instructor lead courses
  • Start date and end date to courses, no subscription periods
  • Most classes are asynchronous
  • Weekly assignment deadlines to help keep you on track
  • Weekly online interactive discussions with classmates
  • Course materials available through online retailers, not required to purchase at UWP bookstore (i.e. textbooks, online subscription, or other items)


Develop advanced in-demand skills to meet immediate workplace needs. An Applied Professional Studies degree focuses on industry specific skills that employers are looking for today while combining real-world application. We designed the MAPS program for the working professionals - offering a flexible format, online courses, and affordable opportunity to achieve your professional and personal goals that align with potential for career advancement and upskilling needs.
