  • Course Description Guidelines:

    Write the description as it will appear in the University Catalog.

    Course description should describe the content and be written in present tense. Do not repeat the title or include class activities or class requirements. The course designator/number, title, hours and prereq/coreqs are listed in separate fields.


    NOTE:   Course Description field is LIMITED to 50 words

  • Course Description (limited to 50 words only.)*

    An opportunity for students to expand their professional experience and learn about government, nonprofit, and related organizations. Requirements are coordinated among student, program coordinator, and organization.

  • Help: This field is required. If there is no prerequisite, use the word “None.” If this course is numbered 3xx or higher, a prerequisite (or corequisite) is required. If it has none, this course will be rejected.
    Prerequisite(s):

    Consent of program coordinator.

  • Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s):
  • Corequisite(s):
  • Justifications for Course Changes are required.  

    Without adequate justification, proposal will not be approved.

  • Help: (this should include any direct or indirect assessment findings that have led you to this proposed change)
    Justification For Course Change

    Credit-hour change: We found the 1-15 credit hours to be excessive, especially for a minor. Therefore, we are proposing it be reduced to 1-3 credit hours.

    Course description: The existing course description is generic and not appropriate for someone in the Public Service minor. Generally, the internships should be with public or nonprofit hosts, not private hosts.

    Pre-req: The existing pre-req is outdated. We do not have an internship coordinator. The program coordinator sets up internships.

    Course number: Since this course was originally created, we have developed an expedited BA to MPA pathway for NKU undergraduate students. With this pathway, the MPA Admissions Committee can waive up to nine credit hours of the 39-credit-hour program for undergraduate students who successfully complete 500-level PAD coursework. In the first few years of this effort, we have found that there are students, primarily seniors, who are involved in meaningful internships that the Admissions Committee could consider as part of the credits to be waived in the MPA program. Thus, it makes sense to change the Internship course number from 496 to 596. (The MPA program has an Internship course, which is PAD 696.) 

  • How does this course change strengthen the program?

    Overall, these changes make the Internship course in the curriculum/catalog to be more aligned with what happens with internships in reality. Specifically, students are doing internships -- or can do them -- in public or nonprofit organizations for 1-3 credit hours.  

    Further, it enhances NKU students' opportunity to transition from an undergraduate student with a Public Service minor to a graduate student in the MPA program. We cannot have a 4+1 or 3+2 program, like many programs at other universities, so this is a small adjustment to help guide and support our students from a bachelor's program to a master's program.
