Episode 8: The Benefits of Prior Learning Assessment for Graduate Studies [Podcast & Vlog]

Watch or listen below as John S. Watson School of Public Service moderators Ann Prime Monaghan, associate dean, and Dr. Malcolm Oliver, dean, discuss opportunities for Graduate-Level Prior Learning Assessment (Grad PLA) in the John S. Watson School of Public Service. They are joined by Dr. Christine M. Willard, TESU mentor and Professor of Education, Director of Childhood & Childhood Special Education at Nyack College; and students Joel Heller (BS ‘94, currently pursuing MSM.Public and Municipal Fundraising and GCERT.Fundraising and Development) and Gerard Cardenas (MSM ‘21, currently pursing DBA), both of whom earned Grad PLA credits as part of their degree pursuits.

Graduate-level PLA allows students the opportunity to earn graduate credit for graduate-level knowledge acquired through work; corporate, military or industry training; workforce development programs; in-depth professional research; and other learning experiences.
