Program Schedule & Calendar
Designed for Your Needs
The Public Administration Program can be completed in 5 semesters or 2 1/2 years. Here is how it works:
- 17 week semesters are split between two 8 week sessions with a one-week break between sessions
- You can take two classes each session (four per semester)
- Students take two classes each session (four per semester). Students can select a Monday-Wednesday or a Tuesday-Thursday class schedule which follows asynchronous schedules. Face-to-face classes meet one evening per week from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- Saturday classes are replaced by weekly online assignments, activities, and discussion boards.
- Classes follow either hybrid or and fully online formats. Each semester will include a mix of face-to-face hybrids and fully online courses.
- Hybrid Classroom Course: Online activity is mixed with classroom meetings, and as used at Flagler, modestly replaces a classroom venue by 20%. For example, if a course traditionally meets in a classroom once or twice per week, a blended version might use online sessions to replace one or two of the traditional weekly classroom sessions or focus face-to-face sessions on laboratory or project work.
- Fully Online Course: All course activity is done online; there are no required face-to-face sessions within the course and no requirements for on-campus activity. Courses consist entirely of online elements that facilitate the three critical student interactions: with content, the instructor, and other students.
- No summer classes.
