Interactive Online Noncredit Certificate Course Delivery Option
The MSU Judicial Administration Program is again offering students the option of enrolling in instructor-led courses as a means of completing their required coursework toward the Judicial Administration Non-Credit certificate. In these courses, a program graduate, with a specialty in a given area, facilitates discussions with students throughout the duration of the online course. Students have the opportunity to exchange ideas, share thoughts, ask questions, and provide feedback with their court colleagues. Students are responsible for reading the online course material, participating in discussion groups, and completing the final course evaluation. These courses are offered between September and April. The schedule of 2017-2018 remaining interactive courses appears below.
