Welcome to the SPA Certificate Program in Advanced Leadership Studies! This program was launched in 1990 in order to offer students the experience, skills, and knowledge to prepare them for leadership roles in public service. Following a competitive application process, students complete the four- year, 15-credit course of study that culminates in a Certificate in Advanced Leadership Studies. Our webpage details how the program takes students from the theory to the practice of leadership. Thank you for visiting.
