Summer 2019:  Core MPA Courses

Registration for Summer Session can be done online through MySlice.
Fall course registration will take place on Thursday, August 1 after academic advising.

All entering MPA (MPA joint) students will register for and complete the following courses:

  • PAI 600: Public Affairs Colloquium – 1 credit (class #: 70244)
    Monday July 1– Friday July 5 (no class on the July 4th holiday)
    Professor Bifulco
    No Final Exam

  • PAI 734: Public Budgeting – 3 credits (class #: 70013 or class #: 70205)*
    Monday July 8 – Friday July 26
    Professor's Rothbart and Hou

  • PAI 755: Public Administration & Democracy - 3 credits (class #: 70022)
    Monday July 29 – Friday August 16
    Professor Nabatchi

    *There are two sections of Public Budgeting, each with a different class number. You can enroll in either section, as there is little distinction. If one section is full, simply enroll in the other. The class has two instructors, but often meets together.

There are no summer course “fees” (beyond tuition) for these classes.

All courses are in SUMMER SESSION II for your summer loan application.

Exact day and time schedules for Public Administration and Democracy and Public Budgeting will be available upon your arrival. Public Budgeting generally meets daily with a morning session with the afternoon dedicated to computer lab time/group project work and some possible review sessions. Public Administration and Democracy generally meets in both the morning and afternoon sessions.

Online Registration Procedures

Please register for these three summer courses online through MySlice. Preferably no later than Monday June 17.
