Chancellor's Certificate in Planning & Zoning
Fundamentals of Economic Development
Each Certificate is an 18-credit-hour program, consisting of core course requirements and electives. In addition, each of the certificates requires an internship/project.
The Public Policy Administration program is proud of its diverse faculty, who are as committed to teaching the public servants and community leaders of tomorrow as they are to publishing nationally-recognized research. Core faculty members hold joint appointments in public policy administration and related departments, such as economics, political science, and business administration.
UMSL maintains strong links to the community by offering technical assistance, consulting services and noncredit Chancellor's Certificates for public servants and community leaders. These noncredit certificate programs include the Planning & Zoning, Economic Development, Volunteer Management, and the National Association of County Collectors, Treasurers and Finance Officers Certificate (NACCTFO).
