Policy Provisions

Degree Requirements

The number of semester hours required for the Master of Science in Public Service Management degree is thirty-six (36).  Three (3) academic components (human relations, management, and research) are included and required for the M.S.P. degree program.  Satisfactorily completing the required 16 classes are needed for graduation.



Written Presentations

Written papers and/or projects may be required in most listed classes.  These requirements are designed to enhance the written communication skills of the participants.



Oral Presentations

Students enrolled in the program will be expected to prepare and present (with appropriate handouts) an oral presentation in most the listed classes.  This requirement is designed to enhance the oral communication skills of the participants.



Positive Communication and Other Needed Skills

Every student is expected to have satisfactory written and oral communication skills.  Computer literacy (word processing) and an understanding of basic algebra are also considered very important.  For individuals deficient in these areas, the University will provide limited assistance in acquiring the necessary competencies.
