- The program offers two areas of concentration: Planning and Management. The MSHS curriculum is competency-based, an outcomes based process of learning that has been practiced at the College of Public and Community Service for over 30 years.
- Each competency in the curriculum is defined by a statement outlining the specific learning outcomes students are expected to demonstrate as well as the measures by which each student’s accomplishments and learning will be evaluated.
- Competencies are achieved through course work, independent study, and utilization of prior learning experiences. Prior learning includes using acquired skills to demonstrate competence by placing this experience within a broader theoretical framework. Students receive a grade for the competencies they complete.
