Short Course Program

The Short Course Program at Batten offers a variety of one-credit courses on areas of skill building, introductions to new fields, and a chance to deepen knowledge. Students can count up to six short courses (graded only) toward the elective requirement of the MPP. See SIS or Lou’s List for course scheduling.

While the short courses are designed to suit the professional development needs of the master of public policy students, bachelor of arts students can petitition short course instructors to enroll where space permits. Undergraduate students should consult with Paul Martin at pmartin@virginia.edu in advance.
