School of Government Releases its 2021-2022 Local Government Course Catalog

Looking ahead to the 2021-2022 calendar year, the UNC School of Government continues to closely monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety of the School’s employees, Master of Public Administration students, and local and state public officials remain a top priority for planning programs in the future. It is also a top priority to be responsive to state and local governments navigating the varying demands of the past year. Regardless of circumstance, it is the School’s utmost commitment to retain the quantity and quality of courses—whether they be delivered in a virtual, in-person, or hybrid format—that build upon the mission of serving North Carolina’s public servants.

Many local and state government officials have told the School how much they appreciate the pivot to online programming and the flexibility it provides. Where it is possible, the School will continue to provide most of its courses in an online format through the remainder of 2021. However, there are some upcoming programs whose efficacy rely on in-person delivery—with precautions instituted to ensure safety for all participants and options to participate remotely for those who prefer.

With these stipulations in mind, the 2021–2022 course catalog is now available to view online. Some offerings may be listed as “TBD.” The School assures that more information will become available as soon as the delivery format is determined by faculty and program management.
