Leadership and Public Service Prior Learning
HONORING YOUR EXPERIENCES, PRIOR LEARNING MAY EARN YOU CREDITS
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside recognizes that college-level learning is not confined to the classroom. The Leadership and Public Service program is one of a few programs across the nation to offer graduate level prior learning assessment (PLA) credit. We can help you finish your graduate degree faster and more affordably by giving credit for significant work and life experiences, military training, formal and informal education, certificates, or training from non-collegiate institutions, in addition to graduate credits you may have already earned.
Compare you prior learning with the program learning outcomes and curriculum.
- Apply ethical principles to leadership practice in the public and private sectors
- Conduct successful research in public policy analysis
- Develop a public policy position, taking into account both scholarship and interest group narratives
- Apply critical theory to questions of social justice in community and economic development
- Utilize conflict management and resolution strategies in a variety of situations
If you identify areas in which you believe you have the competencies and skills to meet the learning objectives you may wish to explore PLA.
