The Specialist Certificate (Public Administration) is the newest program at the Melbourne School of Government and is launching in July 2016. The program has been designed for professionals interested in graduate level study in governance and public administration.
The Specialist Certificate consists of two subjects from the Master of Public Administration (MPA) and is taught intensively, allowing you to maintain work and home commitments.
The program commences with the MPA’s foundation subject, The World of Public Administration, which is taught from July 18-22. You then select one additional core subject from the below list.
- Managing Effectively (3 workshops in July)
- Managing Public Finances (10 night seminars across 5 weeks in August)
- Working Ethically (3 Workshops across one weekend in September)
- Using Evidence (3 Workshops across one weekend in October)
Upon completion of the Specialist Certificate, you may be eligible to advance to the Master of Public Administration if you are interested in pursuing further graduate study, receiving credit for the two subjects already undertaken.
Applications are open now and close July 4. If you would like any further information, please contact Kate Cotter firstname.lastname@example.org.
