The program, taught by Suffolk University faculty, will meet on 25 Fridays during the school year, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants should expect six hours of homework each week in addition to the class time.
Those who have completed the course work will earn a Certificate in Local Government Leadership and Management as well as up to 12 graduate credit waivers that may be applied to the master’s in public administration program at Suffolk.
